As a local, family-owned company, stewardship is one of Lambert’s core principles. We’re committed to giving back and helping others to do the same through our annual “Be the Good” Uniform Drive to benefit medical missions and rural Appalachian outreach.
In 2013 we organized our first Be the Good campaign as a uniform drive to repurpose old uniforms to be used by medical missions groups near and far affected by poverty, national disaster, and disease. For each gently worn uniform donation, the medical professional receives a coupon for a discount off of a new scrub at Lambert’s. We then partner with area ministries like Mission of Hope to distribute these garments to those in need and for medical groups to use in their field clinics.
The response from our local medical community has grown each year as we all come together to give these old, unwanted uniforms a second life helping those in need.
The program’s success is in part due to the benefits for all involved at every stage of the process. Donors get coupons for passing along unwanted scrubs, charities get a bump before the holidays, and thousands of people have benefitted from the donations.
For information on how you can help with our Be the Good campaign or if you are involved in a local charity that would benefit from these garments, please contact us for more details.
