Honoring Dad by Giving

Foundation news | Monday, April 8, 2019

This Father's Day, get involved with the Unity Health Foundation's giving program and honor fathers, grandfathers and other men who have had a strong presence in your life, and in the lives of community members.

"We celebrate family through donations to the Foundation, especially around Mother's Day and Father's Day. Giving a tribute like this is a beautiful way to honor dads and carries a lot of meaning with it," said Foundation Executive Director Cassandra Feltrop. "The mission of the Foundation is to provide support for Unity Health through purchasing the latest equipment and special projects that allow the hospital to enhance patient care. This year, gifts given to the Foundation for Father's Day will benefit the New Life Center of your choice, at either Unity Health's White County Medical Center campus in Searcy or Harris Medical Center campus in Newport."

Feltrop said this is a Father's Day gift that will leave a legacy and hopes that in lieu of mugs or ties, people will consider giving a Father's Day gift that will last a lifetime by giving to the Foundation. Gifts can be made in honor, or in loving memory, of fathers, grandfathers or any other special men.

"There are a number of good reasons why Searcy is a great place to live and at the top of that list has always been the great medical care that we have available here," said Unity Health Foundation Board Member and owner of Tara & Co., Van Simpson. "At Tara & Co. we support Unity Health Foundation because we believe it provides a service that is essential for the city's growth and survival. We're happy that we can help support the "Miracles Happen Every Day" project."

On Father's Day, the Foundation will publish an ad in local newspapers to acknowledge all gifts of $25 or more that are received in the Foundation Office by Friday, June 10. Secure online donations can also be made by visiting and clicking the "Donate Now" link.
