Students For a Healthier Detroit
Organized by: Brittani Schwartz
A group of nursing students at University of Detroit Mercy are working alongside Hands On Boxing Gym to complete a health promotion project focusing on hygiene and nutrition for two Henry Ford School-based Clinics in Detroit. We are hoping to receive monetary funding to create hygiene and nutrition packets for approximately 1,400 underserved students K-8 attending Dixon Education Learning Academy and Thirkell Elementary School. The packets will include essential items such as a: toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, dental floss, soap (non-rinse preferably), deodorant, washrags/loofahs, hand sanitizer, kleenex, etc. The nutrition packets should include healthy non-perishable snacks. Our deadline for the project is March 1st. If you can help us in any way we will greatly appreciate it. Thank you!
