BCC SNO Donates Funds to Pittsfield, Haiti
Mar 16, 2010

The Student Nurse Association (SNO) at Berkshire Community College has raised $1,000 by selling raffle tickets for a trip to the Inn at San Pancho in Mexico. The trip was donated by Victoria Street, SNO co-president. A cash donation of $500 will be made to Partners in Health, a non-profit medical group, and a matching $500 donation will be made to Tapestry Health in Pittsfield, Mass.

The SNO, a small group of students enrolled in the associate degree of nursing program at BCC, work each year to raise money in order to sponsor their graduate pinning ceremonies, as well as make gift donations to local and community agencies and schools. In light of the recent tragedy in Haiti, a decision was made by co-presidents Street and Calla DelSignore, and SNO members, to make a donation from these private funds to go toward relief efforts overseas, as well as here in Pittsfield.

For more information about BCC allied health and nursing programs, call the Admissions Office at (413) 236-1630.
