CCHCS launches second annual scrubs drive for Stockton school

California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS) has launched its second annual scrubs drive for the new Health Careers Academy (HCA) in Stockton. 

The HCA provides a rigorous college prep curriculum for high school students. Many had never considered careers in health care or even struggled with graduating high school at all. The uniform at HCA is medical scrubs; however, many of the students face extreme economic hardship and some students are even homeless. 

Last year, CCHCS was able to provide thousands of new and gently new scrubs as well as various other medically related items through collections from staff all across the state! The students were so appreciative and thankful for all the support and cool new scrubs.

When they started in 2011, they only had freshman students, in 2012 they had sophomores and in the fall of 2013 they will have juniors! The school continues to grow and strive. As we help build the future of health care professionals, we are once again reaching out  for our annual HCA scrubs donation!

If you are interested in donating or would like to find out more about our program, please contact  Liz Gransee at Elizabeth.Gransee@cdcr.ca.gov, or (916) 691-6721.
