Pink October Donation
November 10, 2021

Today, DES presented Union Hospital Breast Center with a donation check in the amount of $1,159.00. This was from the "Pink October" breast cancer awareness t-shirts campaign, a $1 donation per shift for the employees who wished to wear those shirts in place of their uniforms, and some individual contributions. The donation will go into a general fund that helps offset some of the daily expenses that breast cancer patients may incur (and not be able to afford) while receiving treatment, such as transportation costs, groceries, and supplementing utility bills.

The award was presented to Sheelagh Stewart, the Manager and Paul Baurenschmidt, the Administrator of the Breast Center by Director Tome, Deputy Director Donohue, and Assistant Chiefs Strong and Budzialek.
