from Vanessa Branch, MD, MANA Imaging
MANA Imaging decided this year for the first time to include a toy drive and wrapping session at the annual Imaging Christmas party and to donate the wrapped gifts to the Children’s Safety Center.
We hope sharing these photos will help spread awareness of the Children’s Safety Center.
According to Casey Atwood, the Children’s Safety Center Program Director, 90% of the children seen at the center are victims of sexual abuse. Since the center started, they have seen 8,000 children.
Just this year alone, they have seen 600 children.
She said they are always in need of donations (they include a list of current needs on their website), and they were thrilled to receive Christmas presents this time of year for families who were not able to provide their children with gifts.
Here are some pictures of our radiology group, wrapping presents at our Christmas party, and delivering the gifts to the Center.
