This fall, Mother Seton Regional High School was asked by Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Rahway to partner with them in a project designed to help patients with Alzheimers disease or early onset dementia. The hospital staff was in need of puzzles, crayons, coloring books and cards to help stimulate the patients who were admitted for a separate medical issue. The Mother Seton community collected six cartons of these materials that will now be used to focus and relax the patients and help keep them alert during their hospital stay. The hospital items were collected in conjunction with Mother Seton’s Spirit Week.

Mrs. Corinne Wnek, Director of Guidance, and coordinator of the project shared this though; “When our girls heard about this project, they and their families were eager to participate. This quality of service is a hallmark of the Mother Seton student.”

In addition, the students from Mother Seton participated in the hospital’s promotion of Sepsis Awareness by organizing a ‘Red Ribbon Campaign’ for the event. Brittany Casares, Health and Physical Education teacher helped Corinne Wnek to coordinate the student’s efforts as they produced over a hundred ribbons for the occasion.
