                                   Members Making a Difference
                     AORN of Northwest Georgia Chapter #1107 and a pickle jar support AORN Foundation

The active chapter members of AORN of Northwest Georgia #1107 are making a difference in the lives of perioperative

nurses and the patients they serve every day through their support of the AORN Foundation. Under the leadership of the

chapter’s 2008-2009 President, Holly Ervine, RN, BSN, CNOR, AORN of Northwest Georgia has gone above and beyond to

support perioperative nurses through partnering with the AORN Foundation. Along with nearly 150 other chapters and state
councils, Chapter #1107 met the 2008-2009 Chapter Challenge by making a donation to the Foundation.

In addition, members of this chapter were determined to do more to support nurses through the patient safety and

educational programs offered through the AORN Foundation, and they made it happen with a pickle jar. At each chapter

meeting, members made contributions of spare change into a large pickle jar. During Congress, Holly cashed in the

donations, and she along with members of the chapter presented an additional gift of $174 to the AORN Foundation. The

proceeds of this creative donation will benefit nurses through Foundation programs, which include scholarships, research
projects and educational resources.

Without the generous support provided through donations such as this, the important resources funded through the AORN

Foundation would not be available. Holly sums up the idea behind the chapter gift in a quote by Vernon Jordan – “You are

where you are today because you stand on somebody's shoulders. And wherever you are heading, you cannot get there by
yourself. If you stand on the shoulders of others, you have a reciprocal responsibility to live your life so that others may

stand on your shoulders. It's the quid pro quo of life. We exist temporarily through what we take, but we live forever through
what we give.”
