Beebe’s Go Purple Fund helps Families in Need

Young professionals donation

Leaders of Beebe Medical Foundation’s Young Professionals Group and the annual Beebe Goes Purple event presented the Women’s and Children’s Department with car seats, sleepers, onesies, socks, bibs, swaddles, towels, and other newborn necessities to assist families in need.

“We are proud to use a portion of the funds raised through Beebe Goes Purple to help families in need. Bringing a newborn home can be challenging and we hope that these gifts will make the transition just a little bit easier,” said Amy Keller, Beebe Medical Foundation Event Coordinator.

The department has received gifts in the past from the community and area always grateful. These types of donations allow the care team the opportunity to provide necessities to Beebe babies.

“We encounter many families over the course of the year who struggle with meeting basic needs, and often many of these patients/families do not have other sources of support to help them. Being able to gift them with care items that we know are new and necessary, goes a long way, and it feels good to give. We are also creating grateful patients,” said Bridget Buckaloo, Director of Women’s and Children’s Services at Beebe Healthcare.
