I have an ongoing collection of old eyeglasses in Room 116 for donation. Please drop then off and give the gift of sight to those in need. Go to onesight.org for information on the charity.
Community health and general health information can be found on the bulletin board across from the Nurses office. Also, check under “Connecting” on our website. I also have many informational pamphlets and flyers located in the Nurse’s office. Room 116. Any staff member can open the room, so you can peruse the information and take home, if you wish.
Health Cabinet Openings
We have openings to join the Health Cabinet. We meet monthly on Wednesdays at 7:30pm. If you have any interest in the Wellness Wheel (Spiritual, Social, Emotional, Physical, Financial, Vocational, Intellectual), this is a great committee to be on. You do not have to be “Magazine Healthy” to join us. We are all struggling.
Are you concerned about a parent of loved one who may be showing signs of vision loss? Go to Visionlossresources.org. You do not need a referral to receive their many services including vision rehabilitation. They do complimentary in-home assessments. They serve anyone in the 9 county metro region. You may also call 1-877-567-4944 for more information.
Community Food Partnership
I am working with the newly formed Community Food Partnership with Bloomington, Richfield, and Edina. This is a program focusing on food disparity. I am pushing promotion of our Community Garden and our Healthy Cooking on a Budget Classes. Thus, we need more people on our Community Garden Committee. Please contact me or Jane Bishop, if you are interested.
