La Cañada High School recently was the recipient of a furniture donation by Glendale Adventist Medical Center. The donated furniture included desks and chairs valued at $2,500. The hospital was in need of the storage space and the items were not being used anymore.
The desks will be used by teachers and the chairs will be used in school waiting room areas.
When Hilda Bogossian, manager of Auxiliary Relations at GAMC heard that the hospital was going to get rid of some furniture, she contacted Claudia Alquist at the high school and asked if they could use the furniture.
“They were so excited and grateful,” said Hilda Bogossian, a former teacher and current parent. “They have been wanting to set up new working areas for teachers and other staff members but were unable to because they did not have the furniture. It was a perfect match and [perfect] timing.”
