Local couple generously donates stimulus check to Mount Nittany Health COVID-19 Response Fund

During these times of social distancing, monetary support is one form of giving back that is still available. A local couple, who wish to remain anonymous, shared how challenging it is to be at home unable to volunteer as they usually would. “We like to give our time and we can’t give our time right now,” they said. Instead, they chose to support the health system by making a gift to the Mount Nittany Health COVID-19 Response Fund.

Soon after the couple first read about the fund, they received their stimulus check. “There was so much stress on staff, equipment, and everything we figured we’d pass it on,” they shared.

The fund is used to promote the health system’s fight against COVID-19 by supporting patient care, including testing, medication, medical supplies, and staff support. It enables our clinical staff to sustain their resilience while continuing to provide safe, high-quality care to our patients and community.

“We are immensely grateful to donors like this local couple for their gift to our COVID-19 Response Fund,” states Simon Corby, executive director, Mount Nittany Health Foundation. “Gifts such as this allow Mount Nittany Health to be flexible in our response to this pandemic by supporting our patients and staff wherever the need is greatest and to be well-equipped in our fight against COVID-19.” The continued generosity from our community is heartwarming and uplifting and provides us both the strength and the resources to successfully respond to this pandemic.
