Community Health Network’s Serve 360° employee volunteerism initiative hosted “All Honors Dinner” for IPS School #14 students

For release on June 01, 2012

Indianapolis, IN---Community Health Network employees volunteered their efforts to congratulate and award achieving students at IPS School #14 (Washington Irvington Elementary School) during an All Honors Dinner at the school last evening. The Serve 360° initiative, launched last year, offers Community employees a way to live the network’s mission of enhancing health and well-being, while cultivating the spirit of volunteer service.

The All Honors Dinner closed out the school year, recognizing students who have gone above and beyond, to receive the Terrific Kid award and honors for perfect attendance and for making the Honor Roll. About 40 Community employee volunteers assisted with setting up and decorating the school gym, food service and cleanup efforts at the event. The Indiana Fever’s Katie Douglas addressed the students and helped hand out awards.

We are so excited to work with the students of IPS School #14 again,” said Linda Hajduk, vice president of organizational effectiveness at Community Health Network. “These are remarkable kids who don’t have many resources available to them, yet they have achieved so much success at school.”

Last August, at the beginning of the school year, more than 250 Community employee volunteers descended on IPS School #14, the largest IPS elementary school, as part of the United Way’s Day of Caring. The volunteers cleaned up the school yard; painted the playground and equipment; installed benches and metal basketball nets; and painted an entry wall with a mural depicting the school’s motto: Good, better, best. In addition, the volunteers repaired and improved the school’s family resource center and teachers’ lounge, outfitting the rooms with a new washer, dryer, refrigerator and microwave.
