Comment from manager: “Every day we care for sick newborn babies here in DeKalb Medical’s NICU.

This fall, two of our nurses, Linda Cox & Maggie Sofidiya challenged us to collect shoe boxes and fill them with gifts and school supplies for children in war-torn and poverty-stricken parts of the world,

including some parts of USA. The boxes were channeled through

They gave us a goal and we exceeded it big time. They expected we’d collect about 12 boxes; we collected 79! Kudos to our NICU.”
