Beebe Medical Center is supporting Sussex County Habitat for Humanity as part of Beebe’s participation in the Healthier Sussex County Initiative to improve the health of all people living and working in Sussex County.
Tom Protack, community engagement director for Habitat, said, “For people who want to support Habitat but cannot physically come out to build on a Habitat job site, there is always the option of donating, volunteering or shopping at our ReStore which directly helps our mission. All the monies raised through donated items at our ReStore go directly to building homes. Last year, from the proceeds of the ReStore we built one home in Georgetown and two homes in Guatemala.”
