As we approach the end of 2022, I think we all can agree that we are thankful things are returning to some resemblance of what life was like before COVID rocked our world. While things will never be the same, we have learned a great deal from our experiences. The value of working together was evident every day over the past two plus years as Memorial’s dedicated team cared for the majority of COVID+ patients in the Metro-East.
This year, Memorial Foundation joins thousands of other charitable organizations for the largest global giving day of the year – Giving Tuesday – November 29, 2022.
I invite you to participate in #TogetherWeGive – because, together, we can make a difference for so many others. Here’s a few ideas:
- $45 pays for a car seat for our Safe Ride Home Program ensuring that underserved families have a safety-approved and properly installed car seat to take their newborn home from the hospital.
- A hospital bed costs $15,000
- $275 will purchase a wheelchair
- Indigent Care Fund. Last year, Memorial provided $18 million in charity care and financial assistance to those who could not afford to pay for their health care services.
We’re excited to see how much we can raise in just 24 hours to support these great initiatives. You can scan the QR code to access our #TogetherWeGive page on our web site to make your donation. If we can get everyone to share this on Facebook, Instagram, as well as on any and all social media outlets you use, as well as text and email, #TogetherWeGive will be a huge success!
And if Giving Tuesday slips by you, you can still make your year-end gift online or by using the enclosed pledge card and business reply envelope.
Thank you in advance for your support. Best wishes for a happy, healthy holiday season!
