Scrubs & Beyond to Raise Funds for Barco's Nightingales Foundation in Honor of National Nurses Month

BRENTWOOD, MO--(Marketwire - Apr 15, 2011) - Scrubs & Beyond, a leader in medical nursing uniforms, is showing their support for Barco's Nightingales Foundation(SM) by matching all donations made in its stores or though its website, dollar for dollar now through Memorial Day. Barco's Nightingales Foundation(SM), a non-profit organization focused on helping children with medical needs, was established in December 2008 by Michael and Frida Donner on behalf of Barco Uniforms, makers of Grey's Anatomy Scrubs.

It was the Donners' way of saluting the many generations of nurses for their tremendous contribution in making the world a better place for us all. Barco's Nightingales Foundation supports the vitality and courageous heart of nursing, while honoring the spirit of those women and men who choose nursing by focusing philanthropic efforts on helping to mend the lives of children and their families.

Every dollar donated to the Barco's Nightingales Foundation goes directly towards the work of partner organizations like Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California and ReSurge International, which has transformed lives for more than 40 years by providing free reconstructive plastic surgery for the poor in developing countries.

"Barco's Nightingales Foundation is an unbelievable charity organization and Scrubs & Beyond is hoping to help fund some surgeries for those children in need," said President of Scrubs & Beyond, Karla Bakersmith. "Children in need are my passion and I am honored to be able to help them through this Foundation. One donation of $300 will fund a life-changing surgery for a child in need."
