03 Nov Walgreens Donation Allows Seniors to Live Confident, Healthy Lives
DONATION: WALGREENS MEDICAL SUPPLIES
LIVES IMPACTED: 250
Kidz Korna, in Chicago, IL, helps to minimize violence and abuse through media, community, and music outreach. We take at-risk youth in our city from corners to opportunities. We provide multiple programs and resources to help these young people develop a solid foundation for healthy living in their communities while on a journey to adulthood. We inspire, educate, motivate, and care for every child in our program. We also host programs for our older community. Our volunteers and participants visit nursing homes and assist homeless seniors in our community.
We received some medical supplies from Walgreens through our partnership with Good360. Items received included adult diapers, support socks, back pads, wheelchairs, canes and walkers, exercise equipment, and more! We delivered them to our senior community and they were so excited to receive the products! These donations take care of a lot of their personal needs and let them live confident lives knowing they have the products they need to live a healthy life. Most of these seniors live on a fixed income so they often cannot afford to purchase these things. They were so appreciative of this donation.
There was one elderly woman we met who had just had surgery on her knee. Her doctor told her to use medical stockings after the surgery. She unfortunately did not have enough money to purchase them after paying for all of her other medical bills. She found exactly what she needed in the donations from Walgreens. She took her medical stockings home and began her healing process. Thank you to Walgreens and Good360 for your generosity!
