Community Asked to Show Support for Brookings Health During #GivingTuesdayNow

  • April 28, 2020

Brookings Health System Foundation is asking the community to show support for Brookings Health System during #GivingTuesdayNow on May 5. #GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

“We are asking our community to share with our residents and team members what is in their hearts,” said Foundation Director Sara Schneider. “People can share their generosity in a number of ways, including sharing their talents or just giving positive feedback to encourage our care providers during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Ideas for how the community can show support include:

  • Show your love of local health care. Create heart artwork (draw, paint, sidewalk chalk, etc.) and share a photo of it on Facebook or Instagram, tagging @brookingshealth with the hashtag, #GivingTuesdayNow.
  • Leave a positive Google review for Brookings Health System to encourage health care providers and tell them how much you value their local care. Simply follow the link, log in to your Google account, write your review and push post.
  • Donate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure Brookings Health maintains an adequate supply to care for our community.
  • Support the COVID-19 Response Fund through our Foundation. Funds will be used to purchase personal protective equipment and other needed supplies to care for patients and protect health care workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
