Sick and in trouble
when I was sick and in trouble ye comforted me' How
many hundreds of families in New Britain last year could have
said that of the Visiting Nurse Association!
&
tvery day, rain or shine, the little group of faithful women who
make up the Visiting Nurse go their rounds to the sick and afflicted in
every section of this city. No home is too humble, no disease so contagious
that a Nurse does not soon appear at the door in time of sickness. And when
she comes she brings helpful advice, takes care of the bed-ridden and often
gets the meals and runs the house if it is a mother who is ill.

Truly, this is help when help is most desperately needed It can be made wider and
more efficient only in proportion as your contribution to the Community Chest is larger.
