COVID-19 Caregiver Support
We are here. ChristianaCare caregivers are working in coordination with the State of Delaware and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to protect our community. Today, they need your help, as they too face the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) on their families.
ChristianaCare Caregiver Relief Fund
This fund will help caregivers meet unexpected hardships, such as school and daycare closures, job changes for spouses/partners and caring for family members. Dan and Susan Katzin will generously match all donations up to $100,000.
During global health emergencies like the COVID-19 pandemic, our caregivers are at the front lines in our region. They are called to care for our patients and community, guided always by Love and Excellence. As they face COVID-19 head on, putting our community’s health and safety above all else, caregivers need help.
We are committed to supporting them during this critical global emergency, and we need you.
ChristianaCare is a nonprofit organization and you will receive a tax receipt for your generous donation.
Your gift to the ChristianaCare Caregiver Relief Fund will help caregivers manage the pressing priorities of their own families while working around the clock to stem the spread of COVID-19 in our service area and heal those who have the virus.
Please give today — any amount makes a difference. ChristianaCare is a nonprofit organization and you will receive a tax receipt for your generous donation.
