THANK YOU TO OUR FOUNDATION PARTNERS: We would like to thank the Nord Family Foundation, Community West Foundation, Community Foundation of Lorain County and the partners of the Lorain County Covid-19 Response Fund for their tremendous support! Since Coronavirus has turned everything upside down, foundation support has provided emergency and accelerated grant funding for purchasing medication, medical supplies, and preparing for the surge in patient demand due to mass layoffs and potential/eventual loss of health care insurance. We also want to be prepared if Covid-19 would rear its head in a second wave this Fall/Winter. Again, thanks to each of our area foundations for their collaborative response!
