Students are given a fictional occupation, salary, spouse and family, student loan debt, credit card debt, and medical insurance payments. They then walk around to various table-top stations to “purchase” housing, transportation, food, clothing, household necessities, daycare, and other needs. Fortunately, the game also includes a “credit union” to help with their financial needs. Volunteers helped with reality check points, passed out packets to participants, worked individual stands/booths, and assisted with other duties to help facilitate the simulation.

Infant Loss Box Fundraiser

Aurora West Allis Women’s Pavilion offers new moms and expecting parents the amenities and resources they need to be successful. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, some cases lead to infant loss, which includes, however is not limited to, miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS, and the death of a newborn. In order to accommodate for such tragic losses, the staff at Aurora West Allis Women’s Pavilion create keepsake boxes for the mothers, parents, and families affected by infant loss. Currently, nurses on staff are donating all of the supplies and time to make those keepsakes. On average, the hospital needs to make 8-12 boxes per WEEK. In the spirit of our initiatives, we are seeking the help and assistance of our fellow co-workers to aid in the creation of these boxes by helping us to collect items for a donation drive that is the very FIRST of its kind for the hospital.
