Co-workers Donate 275 Pairs of Shoes For Suicide Prevention

breshears,tabitha-shoesThanks to our CHI St. Vincent co-workers, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Advocacy Day is off to a good start.

CHI St. Vincent co-worker Tabitha M. Breshears, BSN RN CEN, Nurse Manager, Emergency Department at Infirmary, has been collecting shoes for the April 20 event at the Arkansas State Capitol in Little Rock. Co-workers donated 275 pairs to the cause. They will be placed as part of a display of 516 pairs of shoes on the Capitol steps to represent the number of suicide deaths in Arkansas during the past year. After the event, they’ll be donated to charity.

For more information, contact Tabitha at 870.834.6777  or via email at tmbreshears@stvincenthealth.com to arrange for pick-up.
