AMI Foundation's 6th Annual Tools For School Drive Benefits Students in Eight Area Schools

Atlantic Medical Imaging Foundation's 6th Annual "Tools For Schools" supply drive resulted in the distribution of 210 back packs and additional supplies to needy students in eight elementary schools throughout the area.

"There are many children right here in our own communities who are not properly prepared for their return to school, simply because they lack the basic school supplies like pencils and paper," Said Dr. Robert M. Glassberg, President of the AMI Foundation. "We are proud to have partnered with the community each year for the past six years in donating much-needed school supplies, and thus help provide these children with an equal opportunity at a quality education."

The AMI Foundation placed blue collection baskets in the reception areas of all AMI locations in Atlantic, Cape May, Monmouth, and Ocean Counties from July 29th through August 15th. Additionally, the AMI Foundation purchased the 210 back packs to accompany the school supply donations. The collected supplies and back packs were delivered to elementary schools through out the area in late August. To date, the AMI Foundation has donated approximately 1,700 book bags to area school children in need.
