This year, the Healthcare Education / Community Education department at Fowler is sponsoring an “Elder Angel” donation drive from Nov. 16 to Dec. 15; in partnership with the Student Life department, along with student clubs – PTK Beta Beta Chai (Monroe) and the Poetry Club (Bethlehem).
As you may know, many residents of nursing homes and other residential settings, have been affected by the pandemic in such a heart-breaking way. Many have to stay in their rooms, with no family or friends visiting, no dining in common areas (but in their rooms), and no social activities they enjoy – since March.
Our hope is that we can all come together to help brighten their spirits with helpful gifts.
Please consider contributing any needed items. Look for the “Elder Angel” tree and donation box in the Lobby at Fowler and Laub Lounge in the College Center.
To make a monetary donation to purchase gifts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations will be given to Northampton county’s nursing home, Gracedale in Nazareth, home to over 600 residents.

These videos will be released in the context of a digital campaign which will start on November 20, World Children’s Day, and will culminate on December 10, Human Rights Day.
Free registration includes access to the summit on 11/20 and to the documentaries.
At the beginning of the Spring 2020 semester, both new and returning students were encouraged to self-reflect about what their hopes, dreams, aspirations, and goals were for the new upcoming semester and the 2020 academic year.
The “I Am…” art mural that was created by the students from NCC Monroe campus during Smart Start week playfully hand-painted, wrote, and drew inspiring images and words…many of which, when reading them, became a colorful collection of affirmations and mantras that reflect a palpable sense of hopefulness, determination, and resolve.
This academic year brought unexpected challenges. Although this year might have not been what many of us had hoped, aspired for or dreamed, it is important to recollect the strength-filled words and intentions by the NCC student community that can help us to reconnect with what our hopes, dreams, goals, and aspirations are. We are in this together. With the end of the semester being two weeks away (three if you include finals week), I am inviting the entire NCC community, students, faculty, and staff to participate in an interactive #I Am… digital art collage.
As you think about your strengths, hopes, dreams, aspirations, and goals, what words and images come to mind. How do you define yourself and your strengths at this time? What are some images and words that you would like to share and offer to the NCC community? To participate in the interactive #I Am digital art collage, just click this link.
To add images and words to create a collage follow these steps:
Go to insert, then click image or text box, if you clicked image, then choose to either upload image from computer or search the web.
I hope that you might find a word or words that inspire and resonate with you from the I Am murals that were created by the students at NCC Monroe.
