Friday June 9 at 4 PM Members of Gilbert Rotary and Members of Tri-Sigma Sorority joined to present the fruits of our second Rotary District 5510 grant. Phoenix Children’s Child Life Specialist Anica Herrera sent a list of needs: The first was for 2 “Bennie Bears”  (we bought 3) anatomically outfitted for teaching procedures to kids, and also a photo printer, a digital camera and accessories so kids can have family pictures at their bedside. All told, with all contributions we spent $2500. After the bears and photo equipment we spent the remaining money on age appropriate and educational toys for the floor.  I thank Chris LaBarge for working with me so closely to accomplish this service again. It is so heartwarming when you are so  appreciated for what you do. Thanks also to Mercy Gilbert Medical Center administrator Rudy Apodaca for his words and for attending the presentation.
