PARTNERSHIP FOR HANCOCK RELIEF
Fundraising Goal: $250,000
Donations as of July 11, 2006: $159,416.20
Hospitals in New Hampshire want to work together to provide relief to those affected by Hurricane Katrina so they adopted a hospital that was severely impacted from this storm. Hancock Medical Center, in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, was in the eye of the hurricane. It sustained substantial damage. Many of the hospital’s 500 employees lost their homes. Hancock Medical Center’s immediate need is to help members of the Hancock Medical Center family get reestablished. The New Hampshire hospital community adopted Hancock Medical Center and its employees.
The Partnership for Hancock Relief fund, coordinated by the New Hampshire Hospital Association, is accepting donations for direct financial aid for Hancock Medical Center employees who suffered personal losses. Contributions are tax deductible and 100% of all contributions go toward direct relief. This will be a long-term effort. We will work with Hancock Medical Center as it gets back on its feet to identify other employee and facility needs that we can work together to help meet.
