♦ We are no longer accepting donations of meals. Since March, we have learned that the challenges of our health care system are varied and sometimes unpredictable. In order for us to be as nimble and responsive as possible we ask that you consider a monetary donation, using the form on our COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund page. Contributions will be used to support staff resilience efforts, meals for staff working long hours throughout the pandemic, COVID-19 research, equipment and technology needs, and more.
♦ We appreciate scheduled donations of products that are acceptable within our infection-prevention guidelines. We ask that you coordinate any deliveries with our staff in advance. To coordinate product donations, please contact Heather Ekre at Heather.Ekre@uchealth.org or 970.624.1870.
