Backpack Donation during Back to School Celebration
August 22, 2021
Since opening in 1924, the Roseland Community Hospital, or RCH for short, has been offering comprehensive healthcare services to residents of Chicago’s far South Side neighborhoods, including outpatient services, a well-known Obstetrics Unit, behavioral health services, and most recently plays host to a COVID-19 clinic. The Hospital, which is located in the Greater Roseland Area at 45 W. 111th St., is open 24-hours, and strives to satisfy the community and offer quality resources to each individual, a mission it has maintained since its inception. At the forefront, professional caregivers provide valuable services to patient’s recovery and overall wellness. Throughout the myriad of social, economic and political changes that have dramatically affected the neighborhoods, the Hospital has maintained a strategic focus to help those they serve.
On Sunday, Sunday, August 22, the team at Roseland will be hosting their annual Back to School celebration from 10am to 3pm, where they will be donating 500 backpacks with school supplies (and pairs of shoes!) to students ranging from Kindergarten to High School. The morning will be a huge celebration, offering food, games, live music right outside the hospital for students and their families from the community to stop by and enjoy.
