Donations Presented

Twice a year, March and September, Bealls hosts “30 Days of Giving” in which donations are collected and then presented to a local charity. This past September, Bealls collected for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. The store raised and donated $490 to be used for research and patient services. Seventy-eight patients were served in 2014 with 295 services. A patient can receive as many services as needed. The office is in Beaumont. Pictured are Tammy Droste, Community Manager for Relay For Life, Rebecca Plake and Billie Cisneros with Bealls. The American Cancer Society needs Vidor involved in Relay For Life, anyone interested in sponsoring, donating a door prize, or forming a team can contact Tammy Droste at Droste@cancer.org or 409-351-9788.
