What You Can Do to Support Your Community During COVID-19

During these challenging times, it’s important to help those in our community. Here are some practical ways to do so.

Ways to support our healthcare workers

We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from the Tristate community, from folks sharing their thanks for our care team on social media, to asking how to provide supplies for those on the front lines. Your care and concern means the world to us. Here are some ways you can directly help our care team, in addition to staying home:

  1. Contribute to The Christ Hospital COVID-19 Response Fund, created to help cover needed supplies and also assist our front-line employees with their greatest needs.

  2. Restaurants can donate meals or snacks to our front-line staff by contacting Volunteer@TheChristHospital.com.

  3. March 30th, 2020 is national Doctor's Day, and we want to thank all of our doctors at The Christ Hospital Health Network. This is a holiday we celebrate every year, but this year is different. Our heroes are putting themselves at greater risk to fight COVID-19, and we're asking Greater Cincinnati to send messages of inspiration to our doctors. Inspirational cards and letters can be sent to the address below, or it can be shared on social media by tagging @TheChristHospital or using the #ThatMomentIsNow hashtag.
