St. Peter’s Health Partners is grateful for the generous volunteers from Siena Colleges and the New York State Police who recently donated their time to pack hundreds of care packages to help sexual assault survivors.
WTEN/News10 reported on the effort, which resulted in 500 care packages donated to our hospitals.
From the report:
“These kits are huge. Patients that come into our facilities have just experienced a trauma,” said Tina Bates, a forensic nurse examiner for St. Peter’s Health Partners.
The bags, made up of toiletries, hygiene items and words of encouragement were packed by a number of Siena students looking to do their part.
“I think it’s really important that people are educated about this and that we cause awareness for something so significant,” said Arianna Wiltsie, a freshman.
