CHI Williston Supports Schools and Teachers

WILLISTON, N.D. - CHI St. Alexius Health continues our commitment to support Williston schools through donations, education and flu vaccinations as we begin the 2020-21 school year.

CHI St. Alexius Health has a few things in store to support our educators during this time:

  • Hand sanitizer - Mini hand sanitizer for teachers to use throughout the day.
  • Education - A COVID-19 special edition newsletter with tips on navigating COVID-19 this year!
  • School Supplies - Although the school supply drive looks a little bit different this year, CHI St. Alexius Health employees are still giving monetary gifts (rather than tangible school supplies). This money will be used to purchase gift cards for schools to use where they need it most.
  • Vaccination Clinic - In partnership with the NDDoH, CHI St. Alexius Health has the opportunity to offer a limited number of FREE off-site flu vaccinations for teachers in September. CHI St. Alexius Health is working with the local school district to organize this off-site event. Additional details will be forthcoming.

“Every year our schools and teachers meet the calling to provide exceptional education to our youth.” said Dan Bjerknes, president of CHI St. Alexius Health. “This year they are also tasked to navigate the educational system amid COVID-19. As their partner in health, we are here to support them.” CHI St. Alexius Health encourages everyone to follow standard COVID-19 precautions.
