Donations to the Drew Memorial COVID-19 Relief Fund will be used to assist employees, as well as purchase equipment needed to continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many of our dedicated Drew Memorial staff members have experienced significant financial hardships at home due to a spouse’s reduced hours or lost job, as well as increased childcare expenses while schools are closed.
In addition, Drew Memorial Health System has struggled to procure adequate testing machinery and mediums in an effort to conduct onsite testing to better prepare ourselves for future outbreaks. Testing equipment and machines are currently on back order with suppliers and are at a minimum $50,000 per machine, with an additional equivalent amount for testing mediums.
Your contributions will help our staff members successfully care for patients without the further worry of financial resources for their homes and families, and provide appropriate testing and personal protective equipment to ensure the safest care possible for our patients and service community.
There are many ways you can support our doctors, nurses, staff and patients during this critical time. Please read through the list below for additional specific needs. We thank you in advance for standing strong with Drew Memorial!
– Safety glasses
– Meals/snacks for employees
– Hand lotion
– Hand sanitizer
– Notes/words of encouragement for employees
A memorial gift to the Foundation offers a special way to express your sympathy and condolences, and honor gifts can be made for any and all occasions. When you give an honor or memorial gift, the honoree or deceased’s family will receive an acknowledgement letter. The letter will not disclose the amount of your gift.
When sending memorial or honor gifts, note whether the gift is in memory or honor of someone and to whom we should send the acknowledgement letter. Please indicate both the name and address. You will receive a receipt for your tax-deductible contribution.
Gifts by check, cash or payroll deduction are welcome at any time. Every contribution is used as directed by the donor. You may choose to have your gift designated for a specific project or it may go into the general fund to be used where most needed.
Individuals and families may wish to contribute to the Foundation by making a non-cash gift by donating property or by naming the Foundation as the beneficiary of an insurance policy, trust or will.
