More than $300,000 worth of equipment and other needs has been donated to Benewah Community Hospital and the St. Maries Family Medicine Clinic through BetterCARE.

Carol Humphrey said the success of the organization is due to the support received from the community at its annual fundraisers.

The BetterCARE Easter Bake Sale is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 3 at the Eagles Lodge parking lot. The golden egg raffle returns and individuals have a chance to win Easter baskets through the Easter egg raffle. Those who have helped with the bake sale include Eula Needham, Carol Humphrey, Patti Wheeler, Dee Coulter, Justine Juarez and St. Maries High School students Kendall Brusseau and Blake McGregor, members of the Health Occupation Students of America club that donated chocolate bunnies for the Easter baskets.

The community has the chance to support BetterCARE this Friday, April 3, at the annual Easter Bake Sale, which is from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Eagles Lodge parking lot.

Those who attend will have the chance to buy tasty treats, raffle tickets for the golden egg that is filled with more than $500 worth of prizes and chances to win an Easter basket. Scrubby, the BetterCARE bear, will also attend. A specific project has not been targeted for the money raised at the bake sale.

Past projects of the organization include purchasing four wheelchairs for the clinic, two infant monitors for the hospital, scholarships, portable ultrasound, children’s activity items for waiting areas, audio monitors for newborns, double-headed microscope, new signs for entrances, baby warmers, and echocardiogram machine and more.

“Each year, BetterCARE requests wish lists from departments. They are reviewed and discussed at board meetings and we decide on which project to target,” Ms. Humphrey said.

Donations of baked goods for the bake sale can be donated by dropping them off at the Eagles Lodge or call 582-0782 to have an item picked up.
