Honoring Mom for Mother's Day

Foundation news | Monday, April 8, 2019

With Mother's Day approaching, the Unity Health Foundation offers a unique giving opportunity through the Mother's Day Tribute program to honor mothers, grandmothers and other women who have had a strong presence 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 moms and carries a lot of meaning with it," said Unity Health 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 Mother's Day will benefit the New Life Center of your choice. With the expansion of the Unity Health Foundation into Newport, you can now choose for your gift to go toward the New Life Center on either Unity Health's White County Medical Center Campus in Searcy or Harris Medical Center Campus in Newport.

"I support the Foundation because we are fortunate to have such a great facility in Searcy. It is a vital part of our community," said Teresa Blakely, Unity Health Foundation Annual Gifts Committee Co-chair.

In lieu of flowers or chocolate, we hope people consider giving a Mother's Day gift that will last a lifetime by giving to the Foundation. Gifts can be made in honor, or in loving memory, of mothers, grandmothers or any other special women. On Mother's Day, the Foundation will publish an ad in local newspapers to acknowledge all gifts of $25, or more, received in the Foundation Office by Friday, April 29.

For more information about how you can honor the special women in your life, or to make a donation, please visit or contact the Unity Health Foundation at 501.278.3186.
