Beebe to host Habitat tool drive October 21-25

October 8, 2013

Beebe continues to support the Healthier Sussex County initiative by partnering with Sussex County Habitat for Humanity to build two houses in Georgetown. This month, Beebe Medical Center is working with Habitat to collect a variety of tools for the nonprofit organization.

Beebe hopes its staff, employees and the public participate in the tool drive, which will be held Monday, October 21, to Friday, October 25. A collection bin will be in the lobby by the patient pick-up traffic circle (near the Emergency Department) at the medical center in Lewes.
