Baxter Healthcare for over 5 years has hosted an ice cream social for our children in our Foster Care Community. Baxter Healthcare has an enormous corporate site in Marion, NC and is one of the world’s largest manufacturer of health care items such as IV bags and materials for dialysis. Over a half-dozen Baxter Healthcare’s staff were kind enough to come to campus and be a part of the fun. Along with several flavors of delicious ice cream and toppings, they also donated over 30 backpacks and school supplies for children as they return to school.
