Student nurses raise funds for New York relief
(09-27-01)

The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks will leave a permanent scar on the United States, but students from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSC) are doing all they can to nurse the country back to health.

The chapter of the National Student Nurses' Association (NSNA) at the UTHSC is collecting donations to assist the victims of the World Trade Center attack. The NSNA will forward all funds to the United Way of New York City.

"As student nurses, we felt the need to do something. We wanted to give a gift that would do the most good, and thought money would be best," said Amanda Wallace, chapter president. "Whatever we can raise will help the country heal."

The NSNA will accept donations through Sept. 30. The organization has set up collection points in the School of Nursing at the Health Science Center and is accepting donations through the mail. Anyone interested in making a donation may send it to: The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, School of Nursing, 7703 Floyd Curl Dr., San Antonio, TX 78229. Checks may be made payable to NSNA.
