Fla., ORLANDO, Fla., April 6, 2020 — In response to an overwhelming outpouring of support from businesses, community groups and individuals, AdventHealth has established a central hub for people who want to support health care employees on the front lines.

Today, the greatest opportunities for community support are:

  • Food for care teams
  • Care packages for caregivers who have been impacted by COVID-19
  • Lodging (hotel, vacation rentals, etc.) for on-call staff
  • Financial donations to support AdventHealth’s nationwide response and relief efforts. One-hundred percent of tax-deductible gifts will be used to help with emergency relief. This fund will extend nationwide to help front-line teams who have been impacted by COVID-19 as they care for communities like yours.
  • Blankets to gift to patients
