Lakeland, FL – On Friday, November 20, the Watson Clinic Foundation (WCF) proudly donated shipments of sanitizer and personal protective equipment (PPE) to students and faculty at the Winston Academy of Engineering in Lakeland.
The donation was made in partnership with the Adopt-a-School program devised by the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce and the Love Lakeland non-profit organization. The program calls upon local businesses and organizations to “adopt” a school of their choice by sponsoring shipments of sanitation and PPE supplies to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.
“These supplies will help to create a safe and productive environment in which Winston Academy students can thrive throughout the remainder of the school year,” said Watson Clinic Foundation President Galina Vugman, MD. “This kind of community outreach has been the backbone of the Watson Clinic Foundation since we were first founded in 1960.”
“We are very excited about receiving the donation of PPE supplies for the students and staff,” said Ava Brown, principal of Winston Academy of Engineering. “These supplies will allow us to keep the school equipment sanitized and our staff and students safe throughout the school day. Thank you Love Lakeland and the Watson Clinic Foundation!”
Over the past six decades, the Watson Clinic Foundation has provided invaluable medical research funding, nursing scholarships, free health screenings, educational seminars and assistance to local organizations who share in their mission of empowering a healthier tomorrow for all.
