AdventHealth has established a central hub for people who want to support health care employees on the front lines.

AdventHealth says this in response to an overwhelming outpouring of support from businesses, community groups and individuals.

They say the greatest opportunities for community support are:

  • Food for care teams
  • Care packages for caregivers who have been impacted by COVID-19
  • Lodging (hotel, vacation rentals, etc.) for on-call staff
  • Financial donations to support AdventHealth’s nationwide response and relief efforts. One hundred percent of tax-deductible gifts will be used to help with emergency relief efforts. This fund will extend nationwide to help frontline teams who have been impacted by COVID-19 as they care for communities like yours.

To learn more, visit the donation hub at AdventHealth.com/COVID19Relief.

AdventHealth is also launching a site for the community to leave a note of thanks or encouragement for the physicians, nurses and other clinicians on the frontlines of the COVID pandemic.

AdventHealth is also asking the community to use #SpreadThanks to post a thank you note on social media platforms for caregivers to publicly see the outpouring of love and support from our community.

“We are humbled and blessed by the outpouring of support from our community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Anthony Mino, director of development at the AdventHealth Central Texas Foundation. “We thank Central Texas for the kindness and outpouring of support during this challenging time.”
