Bay EMT/Paramedic Club helps ER patients

ESCANABA — Bay College EMT/Paramedic Club is participating in a donation event to benefit patients of OSF St. Francis Hospital. While attending clinical time at the emergency department, a student interaction with an emergency room physician revealed a need. There are many times when emergency patients come in for treatment and their clothes are ruined and they have nothing to wear home. One of the students brought this idea to the club and it began from there.

The EMT/Paramedic Club members started to and are still collecting sweat pants and T-shirts that are new or slightly used. Clothing has been and will continue to be given to OSF to distribute to patients who are in need of clothing to wear home upon release from their facility. There have been many community donations of these types of clothing to date.

The EMT/Paramedic Club is continuing to accept donations up until the end of the semester, May 11.

There is a drop box located in the lobby at M TEC. For more information call Amy Anderson at (906) 217-4142 or by email at
