Many HHC staff members have suffered losses from Hurricane Sandy and are facing great hardship. Some are without electricity at home and lack warm clothing, blankets, food, and potable water. Some employees have even lost their homes.
HHC remains committed to protecting and preserving the health and well-being of all New Yorkers. But now, there is a powerful need within our own HHC family as well.
To help, The Fund for HHC, the public hospital system’s philanthropic arm, has established a special Hurricane Relief Fund that will provide one-time monetary grants to assist HHC staff members who have suffered losses due to the storm. Financial contributions can be made to The Fund online at www.thefundforhhc.org; checks made out to “The Fund for HHC, Hurricane Relief” can be mailed to The Fund for HHC, 346 Broadway, Suite 715, New York, New York, 10013.
