Just when we think that COVID-19 is finally in retreat, a new challenge comes our way. As frustrating and discouraging as it may be for the average person, imagine how draining and challenging it can be for our healthcare providers. For two years, they have served our community with tireless dedication and continued to provide the excellent care we needed through this difficult time.
Did you know there is a way to give back and show them the same support? The Northside Hospital Foundation works across the metro Atlanta area to do just that. Currently, there is a listing on justserve.org that allows you to connect with coordinators at each of the Northside Hospital campuses to support frontline workers in urgent need of a morale boost. The foundation welcomes everything from bottled waters to boxed lunches, and notes of thanks to snack bags. These are such easy, safe ways to show support and kindness to those who have shown us so much.
How can you get involved?
Check out the listing on justserve.org for some ideas of how you can help. You can get involved as an individual or family, or invite friends, neighbors and local businesses, too. Even kids can get involved! Any donation or volunteer is welcome. This is a great way to give back, and keep them safe, when they need it most. For more information, visit https://bit.ly/3eSYInr.
