PSJH offers matching contributions for hurricane relief

September 18, 2018 Rod Hochman

In times of crisis, the caregivers of Providence St. Joseph Health never fail to ask, “What can we do to help?” We’ve received numerous emails from people across our organization over the last few days, asking this very question about the devastation caused by Hurricane Florence in the Carolinas.

Hundreds of thousands of people remain without power, and massive flooding continues to wreak havoc in the region. Knowing that many of our caregivers want to contribute to relief efforts, Providence St. Joseph Health will match caregiver contributions to the American Red Cross dollar-for-dollar, up to $100,000. To be eligible for the matching contribution, please make your donation using this dedicated link:

Our hearts are with everyone in North and South Carolina during this unimaginably trying time. We are also there in spirit with each of the first responders, especially the medical personnel and hospital workers, who have been on duty around the clock to caring for neighbors and community members, many of whom are at their most vulnerable. As fellow caregivers, we salute you and thank you.
