The Charity League of Paducah recently presented two $10,000 donations to Lourdes Foundation and Baptist Health Foundation Paducah from its Ethel Dubois Smith Trust Account.
The donation to Baptist Health Foundation Paducah provided naming rights to its Lactation Room in the John and Loree Eckstein Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The new Charity League Lactation Room enhances the patient experience for mothers who wish to breastfeed. The new space is available for patients, their families, and current employees who wish to pump. The private space was designed with comfort in mind and features a recliner, television, refrigerator, microwave for bottle and bag sterilization, as well as other supplies that may be needed.
The donation was made in memory of Ethel Dubois Smith.
