Donors contribute $2,000 to #LMHGivingTuesday to help ER patients

Donors contribute more than $2,000 to #LMHGivingTuesday to help patients

Global day of philanthropy helps fund purchases of clothing

Imagine that you've been in a car accident. You're fine, except you broke your leg.

As they're working on you, staffers in the Emergency Department at Lawrence Memorial Hospital cut your jeans off. They need to get to that leg. Fast. You appreciate their quick action and caring concern.

As you're preparing to go home, you and your family realize you have no pants. They're long gone. Now what?

The Emergency Department staff again steps in to help. They provide you a pair of sweat pants that they help you ease over your splinted leg. Now that's a full-service, caring hospital.

During this season of giving, we are asking that you help us continue to provide clothes to our patients who need them. We ask that you donate to our clothing fund. (Unfortunately, we cannot accept donations of clothing.)

Like many other non-profits, the LMH Endowment Association participated on November 29 in Giving Tuesday, a national day of philanthropy that primarily is carried out online. And this year, LMH donors on Giving Tuesday gave more than $2,000 to the ER clothing project. This fund potentially could help anyone who comes through the doors of our ER.

Our work is never done, so if you would like to help with the project, simply click here and designate in the pull-down menu that your gift will benefit the Giving Tuesday/Patient Clothing Fund. If you would prefer to write a check, that's great, too. 

If you have questions, please call Caroline Trowbridge in our Endowment office, 785-505-3313, or send her an email. And if you're mailing in your donation, please send it to LMH Endowment Association, 325 Maine, Lawrence, KS 66044.

Thank you for helping make a difference in patients’ lives.
