BCMH Operation Sock It to me

The BCMH Auxiliary volunteers are collecting socks for local kids and you are invited to contribute! The annual sock drive has become a favorite project of our employees. We all know kids who can use something as simple and comforting as new socks.

If you want to donate, please purchase new socks still in the package. These will be sent to area schools and given to kids in need ages 5 years to 18 years. Collection boxes are placed in the hospital's front lobby and each of our Family Care Clinics in Adrian, Butler and Rich Hill.

Way to go Braden

State Farm would like to congratulate Braden Yows, a soccer player from Louisburg High School, who was selected as our first State Farm Student Athlete of the week. We were all so impressed by Braden. He was humble, respectful and seems to have a very bright future ahead of him. 

We asked Braden to describe an elite athlete in his own words. He stated "it's someone who can excel on and off the field and who is interested in making his whole team successful and not just focused on himself." Braden's coach Kyle Conley stated "Braden works very hard and has a fantastic attitude each and every day. He always puts his teammates first!" 

Characteristics we are looking for in our student athletes are good sportsmanship, respect, teamwork, and those who excel on and off the field or court. 

We look forward to meeting our future student athletes! Thanks again to Braden and Louisburg High School! - Kellie Davidson State Farm Agent
