With the surge in COVID-19 cases, additional hours are required to keep up with the demands of patients. Who couldn’t use a pick-me-up? You can send morale boosters to specific hospital units.

It is suggested you gather 30 to 100 of any item to reach as many healthcare workers as possible. These items could be gift cards, coffee, on-the-go snacks or even a handwritten card to show your support.

This is a great way to get your company, organization, school group, church group, friends or family involved.

2. Donate directly to the Healthcare Heroes Fund

According to the Huntsville Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees, the best way to help your local healthcare workers is to encourage the best practice of COVID-19 protocols.

If you are vaccinated, you can feel certain you are doing your part to ease the strain COVID-19 has on Huntsville’s healthcare heroes.

Is someone in your workplace or immediate circle unvaccinated? You can offer to incentives, giveaways and even drawings.

If you are unvaccinated, keep masking up.
