06/03/2019- A $40000 grant will help provide food and other necessary items to residents in need in Oconto County. HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital announced they were awarded the money by the Leon H. and Clymene M. Bond Foundation to support Nurse’s Nook – a program that provides families in all five school districts in the county with basic needs items including non-perishable food, personal hygiene products, clothing, medical supplies and vouchers for transportation to medical appointments. Items are kept stocked within each of the school districts throughout the year and provided to students free-of-charge on an as-needed basis. This is the second Bond Foundation grant to be awarded to Nurse’s Nook. In 2018, the program received $30000, which was used to help expand it to the Oconto and Lena school districts.
