Members of the National Student Speech-Language-Hearing Association (NSSLHA) – Marywood Chapter sent virtual Valentine’s Day cards to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Although the cards were “virtual,” the holiday sentiments were the same, sending positive messages to children and their families.
Chapter Advisor, Andrea Novak, established a challenge for the NSSLHA Chapter that involved a monetary donation to St. Jude’s if a minimum of 250 cards were sent.
Another faculty member, Renee Jourdanais, also followed the lead with a donation if the challenge was met. The chapter met the challenge and so monetary donations and a total of 255 cards were sent from chapter members, faculty, and friends of the department.
