Thermometers for Families


I am Miriam Cavender BSN, RN, school nurse with Denver Public Schools. I am asking for donations because I am hoping to be able to purchase about 300 digital thermometers to be able to distribute to families of need once on-site learning continues next school year.

 A lot students are often sent to  school with fevers simply because their families do not own a thermometer. There are many parents that will often come to the school nurse 1st thing in the morning to have their student's temperature taken. 

In order to assure that ALL are as safe and health as possible, I would like to be able to distribute 300 thermometers to families of need. The average cost for one, easy to use, digital thermometer is about $5.00, however, any amount of donation, great or small, will be greatly appreciated and help students and families stay well.

Thank you!
