Caps of Love DeSales Nursing

On Thursday, May 19, DeSales welcomed the Accelerated BSN Class of 2017. For the final event of the orientation, students participated in a service learning project alongside nursing faculty and staff in the Gambet Center for Business and Healthcare.

Caps of Love, a non-profit organization located in Florida, collects recyclable bottle caps, sends them to a recycling center and uses the funds received to purchase motorized wheelchairs for youth aged 21 and younger.

DeSales University students, faculty and administration collected caps this spring to donate to the Department of Nursing. Having learned about this service project from a relative of Dr. Mary Ellen Miller, associate professor of nursing, the West Conshohocken Borough of Pennsylvania began their own collection of caps to forward to the department as well. Overall, more than 3,000 caps were collected. Suitable caps were sorted by the Accelerated BSN class and faculty and will be shipped to Florida next week.
