JERSEY CITY, N.J. / August 7, 2013 — Hudson County Community College Vice President for Development Joseph Sansone announced that the College’s Foundation has received a donation from the Christ Hospital Foundation in the amount of $107,978.00.

Mr. Sansone said that the donation is a result of the Christ Hospital Foundation being dissolved, with pro rata shares of that organization’s funds being provided to eleven recipients. Hudson County Community College will utilize the gift for scholarships in its Licensed Practical Nursing, Medical Assistant, Respiratory Therapy and Paramedic Science programs.

“Hudson County Community College has enjoyed a long and very productive cooperative relationship with Christ Hospital and its School of Nursing,” Mr. Sansone said. “We are very grateful for this gift. It will not only benefit our students, but also our community when the students have graduated and are working in these professions.”
