With employees working long hours and local interest in supporting health care workers, Auburn Community Hospital launched a new fund to support its front-line staff.
The creation of the ACH Heroes fund is in response to inquiries about how businesses and residents can help the hospital’s medical professionals, according to Matthew Chadderdon, vice president of marketing and public affairs at Auburn Community Hospital.
“We want to coordinate it so that it’s distributed to people who are really working day in and day out and could use the help,” Chadderdon said.
The fund, which was established by the Auburn Community Hospital Foundation, will accept donations by mail and online. The proceeds will be used to buy gift cards that will be provided to hospital employees.
Donations can be made online at auburnhospital.org/giving/make-a-donation and by clicking on “Donate to our ACH Heroes Fund.” Checks or money orders can be sent to The Auburn Community Hospital Foundation, Attention ACH Heroes Fund, 17 Lansing St., Auburn, NY 13021.
