Many have tried to describe the devastation left in the wake of the recent Mississippi tornadoes, but no matter what words are used, they simply don’t seem to be enough. The pain and heartache have been acutely felt by the hospital family in Mississippi. Not only were hospital employees faced with the daunting task of triage and treating patients and comforting family members who feared the worst, but they also experienced their own grief and hardships.
While we don’t have an exact count yet, we know that many hospital employees were directly affected by the tornadoes that swept Mississippi. Winston Medical Center in Louisville took a direct hit from an E4 tornado, and is still closed. The homes of hospital employees were totally destroyed or damaged beyond repair. Many others lost family members and close friends.
The MHA Cares Fund has been established to provide assistance to our family of hospital employees who desperately need our help. ALL of the funds raised through this effort will be distributed to hospitals in the affected areas who will then distribute it to the employees who need it most. Contributions are tax deductible and an acknowledgement letter will be sent for tax purposes.
Because of the urgency of the needs, we are urging those who wish to contribute to do so promptly. The first distribution will be made to affected hospital employees in late May.
We have seen an outpouring of support from around the nation for all of the victims of the recent tornadoes, but what people need most after a catastrophic loss is money. Please considerdonating online today to help hospital employees get back on their feet. You can donate by mail, fax or phone here.
