Let's "Go Purple" for #DoMore24DE... and all year long!

By ‘Going Purple’ for #DoMore24, you can make a BIG difference in the fight against
Opioid Addiction in Sussex County. 

Sadly, Delaware is second in the nation in opioid overdoses, and more than half of overdose deaths in Delaware occur in Sussex County.  And since COVID-19,  Beebe has seen a 60 percent increase in overdoses at its hospital. 

“We’ve never seen anything like it, in every age from teens through 70-year-olds,”  said Nurse Kelly Palekar of Beebe’s Behavioral Health team. 

Beebe Healthcare CEO and President Dr. David Tam said,
 "This tragedy, this epidemic continues, and every tragedy we have is personal.”

Your gift* made during #DoMore24- will: 
  • EDUCATE the community and RAISE AWARENESS on opioid use disorder
  • TRAIN the community to reverse opioid overdose and SAVE LIVES
  • HELP those directly affected by opioid addiction to FIND RECOVERY
*Additional matching donations and prizes are being funded by corporate and foundation donors to even further support #DoMore24DE!

We invite you to join us in this personal fight against Opioid Addiction and 
"Go Purple" during #DoMore24DE... and all year long!
