Just because the school year is coming to a close, it doesn’t mean first aid and health products aren’t needed! Camp counselors, youth group leaders, coaches, nurses, teachers and parents who are supervising children this summer all need to have access to supplies for those sometimes-overlooked summertime injuries.
