Christiana Care partners with Gov. Carney to stock basic needs for students in Delaware schools

On Aug. 24, Janice Nevin, M.D., MPH, president and CEO of Christiana Care Health System, along with Delaware Gov. John Carney, attended a kickoff event at Highlands Elementary School in Wilmington for the Basic Needs Closets Initiative. Christiana Care is a partner in this vital program that helped to stock closets in 45 schools throughout Delaware with school supplies, hygiene products and clothing for high-needs elementary and middle school students.

“Christiana Care is proud to support the Basic Needs Closets Initiative, and we appreciate this opportunity to partner with Gov. Carney to support students and families at schools across our community,” said Dr. Nevin. “Our commitment to serving our neighbors includes making sure students have what they need to succeed in school so they can get a good education and lead healthy lives.”

The Basic Needs Closets Initiative is a program led by Gov. Carney and the state of Delaware in partnership with Delaware educators, businesses, health care institutions and nonprofit organizations.
