Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

VINELAND, NEW JERSEY (Vineland Daily Journal) - City high school students turned over $520 Thursday to a representative of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, all the dough they collected from a recent pizza sale campaign.

The students are all studying to be certified nurse aides after graduation from Millville Senior High School and all are members of Health Occupation Students of America.

Vera Ivanoff, a registered nurse and an advisor for the group, said students spent more than two weeks selling pizzas from S&J Pizza in Center City Millville.

The group kept a percentage of the profit for the diabetes foundation. Almost 300 pizzas were sold, Ivanoff said.

The 20 students involved in the fundraiser are enrolled in the Health Care Career Education Program at the high school. The nurse aide program is a part of that curriculum.

The students are preparing for a skills and written examination to received their certifications. On graduation, they will be ready to start work.

Ivanoff said the schoolís HOSA chapter does a fundraiser every year for a variety of health causes, including heart disease, hypertension, arthritis, smoking and kidney disease.
