Sheldon NHS Donates $3000 For Mammograms For Women Who Can’t Afford Them

NHS donationSheldon, Iowa — Women who can’t afford a mammogram will now be able to get one, thanks to the work of the Sheldon National Honor Society.

Just prior to Tuesday (12/4/13) night’s Sibley-Ocheyedan vs Sheldon boys’ basketball game the Sheldon National Honor Society presented a $3000 check to the Northwest Iowa Health Center Foundation to help fund mammograms for patients that do not have insurance or can’t afford to pay for such an important preventative test.

The $3000 was raised by the National Honor Society by sponsoring a pink-out at the home football game on October 11th from funds raised and the selling of t-shirts. The National Honor Society had substantial support from Perspective Insurance and Sanford Sheldon.
