What kind of work do we put in to make a difference?

The Mission of 3 Betties Foundation, Inc. is to be a beacon of Hope through the dark times associated with a cancer diagnosis. These folks are already giving everything they have mentally, physically, and emotionally.  It's our job to find out how we can take some of those burdens and lighten their load!  Since we are a small organization, we are focused on Kanawha Co., and sometimes our bordering counties.  If you live somewhere outside our area, drop us a line and we'll do some legwork to connect you to organizations closer to your home.  Here's a few of the ways we've been able to help:

  • In our relatively short existence, we've put together care packages for the newly diagnosed patients at the Cancer Center.

  • When the new Ronald McDonald House opened, we donated $200 worth of toys for their playroom.  We also purchased a computer for the families to keep in touch with family and friends without depending on their cell phones.

  • When approached about a family in need, we've offered to take our merchandise/info stand to set up at an event and give half of the money raised to the family for miscellaneous expenses.

  • We are working on our Ribbon Card program where folks are given a card that shows they are dealing with a diagnosis, and it entitles them to discounts at a handful of Kanawha Co. businesses.

  • We've orchestrated a food drive during November to help keep the Ronald McDonald House stocked throughout the year.

  • We've worked with different groups to get Christmas gifts donated to the Cancer Center, so when folks come in for treatment, they have a reason to smile.

  • We held a "back to school drive, where we purchased $200 worth of school supplies to distribute at the Cancer Center so patients could stop by and pick up something for their children free of charge, giving them one less thing to worry about!
