Aid First Inc, a youth led local nonprofit, partnered with Marvin Ridge High School HOSA. Aid First Inc is a nonprofit organization that provides first aid kits and medical supplies to homeless shelters in the Charlotte area. One of the Co-founders of the organization, Prabuddha Ghosh Dastidar, is a member of Marvin Ridge HOSA. On December 4, HOSA hosted a bonding event after school. The members all brought supplies to the event and assembled first aid kits to donate to Aid First Inc. The event was a great success! Overall, there were over 120 supplies donated and more than 20 kits assembled. Additional basic needs items were also donated such as blankets and hygiene items. There were over 55 people that donated. Thank you to everyone who donated and helped assemble the kits!
