This year, UNMC partnered with The Nebraska Medical Center to adopt families we serve at the hospital and UNMC who face challenges during the holidays. The School of Allied Health Professions (SAHP) adopted a family from the NICU — a mom, dad, and son — and collected approximately $400 with which to shop for items on the family’s wishlist.
Nicki Simmons, events coordinator for the SAHP, did the shopping. “I LOVE to shop,” she said, “and this was a great reason. I used lots of coupons and Black Friday sales, and we got almost everything on their list!” Other faculty and staff helped wrap the gifts pictured below.
We wish the best for ALL families during the holiday season and beyond.
