11th Annual Tools for School Drive

The Atlantic Medical Imaging (AMI) Foundation recently donated 325 backpacks filled with school supplies to 13 area schools. The supplies were collected during the Foundation’s 11th Annual Tools for Schools Drive held prior to the school season. Thank you to everyone who donated and our volunteers for helping us provide so many local children with everything they need for a successful start to their school year.

”Many New Jersey children face the prospect of arriving for their first day of school without the most basic of school supplies,” said Dr. Peggy Avagliano, President of the AMI Foundation Board of Directors. “With the support of our physicians and employees, along with the community at large, we are so pleased to help provide these children with an equal opportunity at a quality education.”

Each year, the AMI Foundation places blue collection baskets in the reception areas of all 14 AMI office locations in Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Monmouth and Ocean counties. AMI staff, physicians and community members are invited to contribute essential school supplies. The AMI Foundation purchased the backpacks to accompany the school supplies. To date, the AMI Foundation has donated more than 3,100 back packs and supplies to area school children in need.
