LEWES — The Lewes Lions Club has donated $2,500 to thank Beebe’s nurses for the care they have provided and all they are doing to support the community, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With National Nurses Week in swing, the Lions decided their $2,500 gift would help the Beebe Medical Foundation prepare healthy snack baskets to distribute to the nurses during their shifts.
National Nurses Week begins on May 6 and ends on May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday.
“Beebe Healthcare and Beebe Medical Foundation are grateful for the strong and loyal partnership we have enjoyed for so many years with the Lewes Lions Club,” Tom Protack, president of Beebe Medical Foundation, said in a statement. “This wonderful gesture of providing snacks, treats, and refreshments to our nurses is a great sign of appreciation for all our nurses have done to keep us safe during this pandemic.”
“Our members know nurses are working in harm’s way every day and the sacrifices they make. This is our way to thank these true heroes and let them know they are appreciated by the community,” Lewes Lions Club President Lloyd Schmitz said in a prepared statement.
The Lewes Lions Club is currently holding virtual meetings via Zoom on the second Wednesday of the month (September through June) starting at 6:30 p.m.
