NEWS RELEASE Community Nurse Health Association Phone: 708.352.0081 23 Calendar Court Fax: 708.352.9578 La Grange Illinois 60525 ________________________________________________________________________ FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE August 12, 2008 CONTACT: Terri Rivera at 708.352.0081 email@example.com Eagle Scout donates 4000 books to Community Nurse (LaGrange, IL)—More than 4,000 books were collected, sorted and donated to Community Nurse by Eagle Scout candidate Tom Miller, a 17 year old resident of LaGrange who will be a senior at Nazareth Academy. Throughout the summer, Tom worked with local churches to speak to their congregations and host drives. He placed a box at each location with a description of his project and information about Community Nurse. People generously supported his project to the tune of 4000 books. He stored the books in his parent’s garage and it took several trips in their SUV to bring all the books to The Carousel Shop. Tom personally sorted all the books by category—breaking them down into fiction romance, mystery, non fiction, Spanish, children, cookbooks, etc. The books were donated to The Carousel Shop, 23 Calendar Ave. LaGrange. The resale shop proceeds benefit the health and dental clinics at Community Nurse. More than 100 volunteers a week donate their time to serve as sorters, pricers and cashiers. Tom summed up the project by saying: “Thank you for helping me with my Eagle Scout project, and more than that, thank you for what you do for our community. You work with a noble cause to help those in need, and you deserve to be applauded. You save the lives of those less fortunate. Thank you for your willingness to work with me to meet my goals.” Community Nurse provides health and dental care to 2,900 uninsured and low income people in the western suburbs.
