Health Care Professionals Club Donates to the Onalaska Fire Department
Globe-La Crosse students understand the importance of giving back to the community. The Health Care Professionals Club (HCPC) at Globe consistently supports community organizations through volunteering and fundraising. At least once a quarter, HCPC students raise funds for a local organization. In the past, the group has supported the Humane Society, Steppin’ Out in Pink, the Children’s museum, Wafer, and many others. Most recently, HCPC members visited the Onalaska Fire Department to deliver a $150 donation!
To raise these funds, HCPC students promoted a “No Scrubs” day on campus. At Globe University, students enrolled in health care programs are required to wear scrubs to their classes. This is a school policy to build professionalism and prepare students for employment. During finals week, HCPC members arrange for students to donate money to not wear scrubs. Through this fundraiser, HCPC members raised $150 for the fire department.
The HCPC members asked that the funds they donated support a fire department program to purchase plush Dalmatian toys for children who’ve experienced fire related emergencies. In the past, the firemen and women have given out these toys but haven’t recently due to a lack of funds in this program.
Kudos to the members of HCPC! You’re truly making a difference in the community!
