Making the Holidays Brighter for Children in the Hospital

One thing that really sets Globe University-Green Bay apart from other colleges is our We Care mission.

Many classes include applied or service learning that helps build collaborative partnerships in the community, benefiting both the organizations we work with and the students who are given the opportunity.

One student in particular took that mission to a new level.

“Since I’ve started coming to Globe University, I’ve enjoyed doing the service learning projects in class, so I decided to do one of my own,” Michelle Jadin said.

What better to do a service project than to gather toys and supplies to benefit children in our local hospitals, Bellin and St. Vincent’s?

Michelle, a medical assistant student and student leader on campus, organized the project herself. It was an idea she came up with on the spot.

She is passionate about kids and her career choice of medical assisting, and wanted to do something to make the holidays better for kids who were stuck in the hospital.

Little did Michelle know her project would turn out to be such a great success!  

With the help of students and staff at Globe University, the campus graciously donated well over 60 items: toys, books, crafting items, stuffed animals, puzzles and more. All were be shared with kids at Bellin and St. Vincent’s hospitals.

When Michelle went to drop off the items at St. Vincent Hospital, the staff was so grateful that Globe University staff and students thought to collect and donate items to make children happy.

We are grateful to have such a giving campus and students like Michelle who take initiative to organize awesome projects like this to help our community!
