Now more than ever, it is important that our hospital and healthcare staff have the tools they need to be prepared and provide the best care to patients when they need it most. Injuries and other illness haven't stopped. St. Joseph's Hospital continues to care for our community, our family and friends facing their own personal healthcare needs.
As a Foundation whose primary role is to support healthcare, we learned very quickly fundraising in a time of crisis impacts us all even if we aren't directly impacted by COVID-19. The pandemic has meant that many of the Foundation's major fundraising events including Hidden Treasures and Late Night with the Foundation had to be cancelled, resulting in a loss in fundraising revenue in excess of $200,000. That means St. Joe's Foundation must find other ways to respond to important needs as they arise while continuing to meet ongoing commitments to improve patient care. These needs are real and we need your support.
