Covid-19 Community Participation Opportunities for Healthcare

Covid-19 Community Participation Opportunities for Healthcare

The CoxHealth Foundation is grateful beyond words for the outpouring of support for our healthcare workers, their safety and the care they are providing during this crisis.

Each day is a new day and things are changing quickly as hospitals, community leaders and others are trying to figure out the best way to stop the spread in the Ozarks. If you would like to support CoxHealth frontline workers donate today to the CoxHealth Employees Heroes Fund using this form or by clicking here and putting Heroes Fund in the box where it asks what your gift supports. You can also make gifts to help support the purchase of vital PPE (personal protection equipment) or other needs as identified by the health system in this crisis.

What CoxHealth is needing today is manufactured healthcare masks, gowns, face shields and gloves. If your business, organization or company has or manufactures these, they can be donated at the CoxHealth Foundation office at 3525 S. National in Springfield. Call us at 417-269-7150 and we will come curbside to pick them up so you don’t have to be exposed to anyone. Just them hand off and receive our gratitude in return.

CoxHealth is also accepting handmade masks. We are asking that the masks all be made from the specified pattern available here. The kind of material is up to the donor, but if OLY FUN fabric is available, it is our preferred material because it is a polymer and can be cleaned easily. These too can be dropped off at the CoxHealth Foundation office. While our address is S. National, we are located on Walnut Lawn Street, between the CoxHealth Pediatric Center and the CoxHealth Outpatient Surgery Center. Again, please call 417-269-7150 and we will come pick up your generous donation curbside.

Restaurants have also kindly donated food and drinks for our staff, this is also greatly appreciated and can be coordinated through our office by calling 417-269-7037. Finally, we realize that there are many who will be in the coming months struggling financially to pay their daily living, their car and medical bills. If you would like to help us help them through the 31 Patient Service Funds available for patient grants at the CoxHealth Foundation, click this link.

Every dollar stays local and every dollar helps a patient to receive one of life’s greatest gifts- good health. Thank you Ozarks. Stay safe, stay home and stay healthy!
