Rindge School of Technical Arts at Cambridge Rindge and Latin's Club Med Health Care Club visited Mount Auburn Hospital’s Bain Birthing Center this week to donate homemade knitted baby caps to the hospital’s newborns and families. Club Med is an after school service club for students interested in possible careers within medicine and health care. Run by Gina Hughes, Assisting Teacher at the Rindge School of Technical Arts, the club involves students by giving back to the community through service projects and fundraising efforts.
The Club Med students wanted to give back to Mount Auburn Hospital as a thank you for the opportunities to explore and experience the medical field, that the hospital provides many students in this group. The students fundraised to purchase knitting supplies, and then were taught to knit by AnneMarie Ciccarelli, RN, Dosha Beard, and Behan Duncan.
