WSC student nurses to Trick Or Treat To Feed a Need Oct. 31
WILLISTON, N.D. - Williston State College's ADN (Associate Degree Nursing) Student Nursing Organization is pleased to announce that they will be going door to door on Halloween - "Trick or Treating to Feed a Need". Instead of asking for candy, the group will be asking for canned goods or nonperishable food items to help stock the local Salvation Army Food Pantry.
"We will be dressed in our WSC nursing scrubs, which are hunter green, and we'll have our nametags on," said AND SNO President Keisha Hana.
The group, made up of 14 student nurses who are working on their Associate Degree in nursing, was looking for a way to help the community. Last year they donated to the Christmas for Kids project.
"We had been brainstorming and one of our instructors gave us the idea for trick or treating for the food pantry," Hana said. "She said that it had been done in Bismarck and was a great success so we wanted to see if we would have any success with it here in Williston."
For those who would like to make a contribution of canned or non-perishable foods but do not receive a visit from the student nurses, donations can also be dropped off in the Nursing Department of the WSC campus until Nov. 7.
"We are hopeful that people will open their hearts and donate to this great cause," Hana said. "Help feed a need; even the donation of one can will make a difference in someone's life during the holiday season."
