Students at Davis Drive Middle School in Cary are helping the sick and wounded as part of a global health initiative. The school’s Odyssey of the Mind team has partnered with the residents of SearStone’s Brittany Place, a nearby assisted living and skilled nursing care center, to recycle used linens donated by the Umstead Hotel and Spa.
The students and their senior friends are turning the linens into bandages and arm slings to be sent to countries in need via Global Health Ministries. Many hospitals and health care centers in these countries prefer the bandages because their quality is better than what they can access locally. So far, the students and SearStone residents have made more than 1,000 bandages to send across the globe. Learn more at davisdrivems.wcpss.net.
