Donate a Meal to A Medical Care Provider
Every year The Howard County Bar Association raises money for a variety of worthy causes. Shut down as we are due to the pandemic, the Bar Association wants to continue making a positive impact on our community even without our in-person fundraising events.
This June we honor our Howard County Doctors, Nurses and other medical care workers who are on the front line fighting the effects of the pandemic. We ask for your help in raising funds for the Howard Hospital Foundation “CARE FOR OUR CAREGIVERS” program. The dollars you give are used to help care for the staff as they care for the patients and community. Their greatest needs for caregivers has been for meals for staff with a cost of about $9,000 per day. In turn these funds also support local restaurants in need of business.
The Howard Hospital Foundation is a private, non-profit organization entrusted to provide philanthropic support of Howard County General Hospital: A Member of Johns Hopkins Medicine. Howard County has had over 2000 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 75 deaths. Hospital workers have cared for over 1100 COVID-19 patients since March and that work continues today with over 30 current Covid-19 patients in both Acute Care and in the ICU.
All of the proceeds from this online fundraiser go directly to the support for the county health care workers.
