Paladin receives thermometers to keep client families safe

Paladin receives thermometers

After spearheading a project to raise funds for the donation of 2,000 thermometers to Michigan City Area Schools families, the Franciscan Health Foundation has extended that outreach to Head Start of La Porte County. The Foundation received a request from the program, which promotes school readiness of children between 3 and 5 from low-income families, and agreed to purchase the thermometers with contributions to the Franciscan Health Michigan City Thermometers Project, resulting in the donation of more than 100 thermometers to Paladin, Inc., the non-profit that runs Head Start. The thermometers will help families monitor temperatures to mitigate COVID-19 community spread. “With everything going on around us there are still servants out there willing to help. We appreciate the kind donation of the thermometers which will be given to each Head Start family so they can be on top of keeping their children healthy,” said Nila Williams, community partner coordinator.
