Winston Churchill famously said, “You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.” This message is at the crux of who we are as humans. It speaks to the community mindedness that we have as humans – even when some of those old traditions of giving back may seem to have disappeared. At Beebe Healthcare, we are fortunate to have volunteers who help us in many facets of what we do. From the surgery center to sitting with patients at the Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus to selling crafts and managing the Beebe Treasure Chest Thrift Store – our volunteers are the heart and soul of Beebe.
