|Delivered Bundles Making Impact In Chelan
Delivered Bundles, the Lake Chelan organization that supports new mothers in need, recently gave over $700 to the Lake Chelan Community Hospital Foundation. The donation was the result of a campaign to increase awareness and funding for newborns and mothers that give birth at the Lake ChelanCommunityHospital. Proceeds from the organization’s Glassybaby event at Benson Vineyards on June 7 kicked off the giving campaign.
“The event was a huge success for both our organization and Glassybaby,” said Delivered Bundles Founder Beth McGuffin. It built community awareness for Delivered Bundles and the need for our work in our growing community. It was also wonderful to have such an amazing company agree to include us in their road show!”
Approximately 70 people attended the event that hosted Glassybaby--the Seattle-based manufacturing company known for its handcrafted candleholders. Glassybaby Founder Lee Rhodes created the product line while enduring a seven-year battle with a rare form of lung cancer. Rhodes’s company is committed to donating funds dedicated to health, healing and quality of life.
“We are grateful for the community support we’ve received. Our organization makes a tangible and measurable difference in the lives of underprivileged mothers and babies within our community. It’s rewarding to be able to help our neighbors,” said McGuffin.
Shortly after the birth of her son, Marcus, McGuffin was approached by a mother-to-be asking for items that her newborn son may have outgrown. This conversation increased McGuffin’s understanding of the need for assistance among new mothers and babies in the Lake ChelanValley. After brainstorming with mothers in her weekly coffee group, as well as Dr. Martin Clements, Delivered Bundles was born.
Delivered Bundles is best known for providing new and gently used clothing and products to underprivileged babies before they leave Lake ChelanCommunityHospital. Each Delivered Bundles box contains eight outfits, a blanket and toy.
The Lake Chelan Community Hospital Foundation actively manages donor contributions, bequests, memorials, donor advised funds, endowments and the Annual Giving Campaign. Each year the Foundation awards scholarships and assists the hospital to purchase necessary equipment to improve patient care.
