Grateful Donors – Community Donations Support Health Care Workers

The COVID pandemic has been life-changing for everyone, and our local health care workers have worked tirelessly through it all to keep our community safe and healthy. Local businesses, organizations and individuals have rallied around Hutchinson Health employees to show support and gratitude. Every donation, whether a monetary gift or pizza for staff, has made a big impact in showing the strength of positive actions and coming together as a community.

Andrew Miner, a donor to the COVID-19 Response & Relief Fund said, “I wanted to give back to a community that supported me growing up, and to inspire cherish-able acts, no matter how big or small they make an impact. It’s about community and family, and how we can support each other in times of need.” 

We would also like to thank the following individuals, groups and businesses who boosted the spirits of Hutchinson Health team members by making generous donations:

  • 3M – 1,000 N95 & R95 masks
