Heat Players and Serenity Home Healthcare Staff Join to Help Those in Need

With the addition of NBA All-stars LeBron James and Chris Bosh, the 2010 Miami Heat team is receiving the most exposure they've ever seen as an organization.

The impact that the Heat have had on the economy and fans was to be expected, but the unforeseen impact that they have had on the community is tremendous. The Heat currently have more community relations programs than ever before.

The Heat, like other NBA teams are involved in the community by participating in many service projects through collaborative partnerships with Miami-Dade public Schools, Serenity Home Health Care, Levy Restaurants, and American Airlines.

Much like the Heat have received enormous exposure this season, they have recognized the need for students to receive extra exposure to academics, particularly in math and reading.

The addition of such moguls in the sports industry has helped blossom the Heat into a premier philanthropy team.

The Heat are embracing the importance of providing students with after school programs in south Florida. The Heat partner with Miami-Dade County Public Schools and the Group corporate partners, to facilitate HEAT Academy at two local inner city schools, Paul Laurence Dunbar Elementary and Little River Elementary. The Heat academy works as an after school outlet for students to study math and read in a safe environment.

Along with this after school program, the Heat partner with Heat Family Outreach Charitable Fund to give away $10,000 in scholarships to high school seniors every year.

The Heat are not only reaching the community through schools. The Heat have developed the Re-HEAT program to distribute leftover food from all Heat home games to homeless shelters in the South Florida area.

Amongst these shelters is the Camillus House Soup Kitchen which is the largest kitchen in Miami.

The Heat also held its first ever Heat Beach clean-up in an effort to beautify the community. This event served as a feature event for the Miami HEAT during NBA Green Week which took place early April this year.

A source close to the Heat organization says, "These players feel a need to give back."

Vincent Carmona, CEO and founder of Serenity Home Healthcare says ,"We have been working in partnership with the Miami heat for 3 seasons now, and we have never seen the response in the community that we have seen this year. People everywhere are dying to get a glimpse of these guys, they're like rock stars when we do events."

Carmona, who has been involved in the community for several years, was pleased when asked what programs are being implemented this year. "The largest program we've come up with is the Re-Heat drive."

Serenity and the team held a special re-heat event the Monday before thanksgiving to pass out meals to the homeless in Overtown.

You don't usually associate NBA players with a willingness to give back, but Carmona says all of the players, including the superstars were out there giving back and shaking hands with those who probably will never be fortunate enough to attend a Heat game in person.

Re-HEAT Program 2012

Presented by Serenity Home Health Care

MIAMI - Mere minutes after beating the Orlando Magic 90-78 on the HEAT home court, HEAT players Norris Cole, Terrel Harris and Mickell Gladness visited the Chapman Partnership facility to deliver food and serve meals to over 400 residents of the facility as part of the Re-HEAT program. The Re-HEAT program which was started four years ago, donates left-over food from the arena to feed some of Miami's most needy population.

Through the assistance of presenting sponsor, Serenity Home Health Care alongside supporting partner, Levy Cares, to date, over 20,000 pounds of food have been distributed to Re-HEAT beneficiaries, the Miami Rescue Mission and the Chapman Partnership.

Instead of serving assists, HEAT players and sponsors served barbeque chicken breast, corn, and macaroni & cheese to residents. "You know there are tough times right now, it's good to see the smile on their faces when they're getting a good meal.", said HEAT point guard Norris Cole.

Also assisting the Miami HEAT players at the event were executives from presenting sponsor Serenity Home Health Care and supporting sponsor Levy Restaurant.

Everyone involved felt a great sense of appreciation to be able to give back to the community, as Mickell Gladness stated, "When you get a chance to do a lot of stuff like this, when you give back to the community. It helps you realize even more how blessed we are to be in this position." — at Community Partnership For The Homeless.

Happy Nurse's Day 2011

National Nurses Day, also known as National RN Recognition Day, is always celebrated on May 6th and opens National Nurses Week. National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, the birth date of Florence Nightingale.

National Nurses Week is one of the nation's largest health care events, recognizing the contributions and commitments nurses make and educating the public about the significant work they perform. The American Nurses Association (ANA) supports and encourages National Nurses Week through state and district nurses associations, educational facilities, and independent health care companies and institutions. The week-long celebration is designed to accommodate the variety of schedules nurses are required to work.

Activities during National Nurses Week typically include banquets and recognition dinners, state and city proclamations, continuing education seminars, and other community events. Nurses are typically honored with gifts, dinners, and flowers by friends and family members, coworkers such as doctors and administrators, and patients who want to show their appreciation.

The history of Nurses Day can be traced back to 1953 when Dorothy Sutherland of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare sent a proposal to President Eisenhower to proclaim a "Nurse Day" in October of the following year. The proclamation was never made, but the following year National Nurses Week was observed from October 11 – 16, marking the 100th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's mission to Crimea.

In 1974, President Nixon proclaimed a "National Nurse Week." In 1981, a resolution was initiated by nurses in New Mexico to have May 6th declared "National Recognition Day for Nurses." This proposal was promoted by the ANA Board of Directors and in 1982, with a joint resolution, the United States Congress designated May 6th to be "National Recognition Day for Nurses." The proposal was signed by President Reagan, making May 6 the official "National Recognition Day for Nurses." It was later expanded by the ANA Board of Directors in 1990 to a week-long celebration (May 6-12) known as "National Nurses Week."

National Student Nurses Day is celebrated each year on May 8th. At the request of the National Student Nurses Association, the ANA Board of Directors designated May 8th as National Student Nurses Day beginning in 1998. And as of 2003, the ANA has declared that National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week.

International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world on May 12th of each year. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) commemorates this day each year with the production and distribution of the International Nurses' Day Kit which includes educational and public information materials for use by nurses everywhere. The ICN has celebrated International Nurses Day since 1965.

Florence Nightingale Pledge

I solemnly pledge myself before God and in the presence of this assembly, to pass my life in purity and to practice my profession faithfully. I will abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous, and will not take or knowingly administer any harmful drug. I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate the standard of my profession, and will hold in confidence all personal matters committed to my keeping and all family affairs coming to my knowledge in the practice of my calling. With loyalty will I endeavor to aid the physician in his work, and devote myself to the welfare of those committed to my care.

This modified "Hippocratic Oath" was composed in 1893 by Mrs. Lystra E. Gretter and a Committee for the Farrand Training School for Nurses, Detroit, Michigan. It was called the Florence Nightingale Pledge as a token of esteem for the founder of modern nursing.  Source: The American Nurses Association
