MH Imaging provides medical imaging services. The health care provider aims to help children in poverty access basic school supplies because one in five children don’t have the basic school supplies they need. In the Racine Unified School District, 65 percent of its 20,000 students live in poverty.
The bags contain pencils, notebooks, folders, and other essentials school supplies.
