We are extremely grateful to all the men and women on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic, who are working tirelessly to keep us safe and healthy. To help North Texans show their support, Texas Health Resources launched the COVID-19 Response Fund and the Hearts for Healthcare Workers Initiative.
Employees at several Texas Health facilities (including Texas Health Plano) have received numerous donations, including masks made by local companies, bottles of hand sanitizer and bouquets of flowers along with nutritious food deliveries and hotel accommodations. To date, Texas Health has coordinated with more than 400 donors for in-kind donations of meals for front-line caregivers or personal protective equipment.
To meet the growing demand, Texas Health established a COVID-19 Response Fund to support its front-line workers – thousands of employees selflessly serving the community every day – with basics like shelter, food, daycare and other critical medical equipment as they respond to the pandemic with courage and professionalism. The fund also supports Texas Health’s evolving work to ensure the health and well-being of the entire Texas Health community during this challenging time.
“Texas Health truly appreciates the community’s sincere gratitude for front-line workers – true heroes demonstrating their selflessness and sacrifice daily,” stated a recent press release. “By working together, North Texans will not face these trying times ahead, alone. They will be faced and overcome, together.”
