TMC nurses donate to charities and Celis family

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Nurses of Tucson Medical Center are honoring national Nurses Week by donating to three Arizona charities and the family of Isabel Celis.

For the first time instead of a nursing gift TMC gave out around 1,150 one dollar wooden tokens that could be distributed to the designated charities.

The tokens were given to nurses, patient care technicians, behavioral health technicians, speech therapists and unit clerks.

The donations could be given to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, Integrative Touch for Kids, the Judge Marks Employee Assistance Fund, or the Isabel Mercedes Celis Fund.

Isabel was last seen Friday, April 20. Her mother is a nurse at TMC.

 "Even though nurses already do so much to help the community, I think it's a great way to do even more to help people who are struggling," said Christan Beier, a registered nurse who is co-chair of TMC's professional development council.

Checks will be presented to representatives from the charities at the annual "Nurses Wear White" event Wednesday, May 9.

According to Sgt. Maria Hawke, move than 1,000 tips. Media briefings will be held on Tuesday and Thursday of this week at 2 p.m.
