Community Service Event at RSNA 2023 Generates Warmth and Joy For Those In Need

Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2023

In response to the pressing needs of the unhoused community in Chicago during the winter months, a group of attendee volunteers participated in a community service activity on Tuesday.

RSNA's Health Equity Committee coordinated the activity to support two Chicago-based organizations, Care for Friends and Sarah's Circle, that serve the unhoused.

Committee members and attendee volunteers worked diligently to assemble cold weather and hygiene kits. The cold weather kits included items such as socks, gloves and hand/feet warmers and the hygiene kits included toothbrushes, toothpaste and body wash. Each kit was packed in a durable, reusable tote bag.

Each bag included a personal note from one of the participants with words of encouragement and kindness.

Participants enjoyed several hours of comradery and compassion as they united in their shared commitment to make a positive, inclusive impact on the lives of the unhoused population in Chicago.
