The HHF has been raising funds to care for our front line caregivers during the COVID-19 response. Providing meals to those working the front lines at the hospital is our current priority – it is a way to show our gratitude for all they are doing while helping them maintain their nourishment and focus on their work. It is also a privilege to have the opportunity to provide needed business to some of our community’s local restaurants during this time.
Please help us to share this fundraiser in any marketing and communications related to providing meals to HCGH staff, so we can sustain this program and provide meals as long as possible. Donations may be made here; COVID-19 Response: Caring for our HCGH Caregivers or directly through our website: www.hcgh.org/give
