When the COVID-19 pandemic began, Johnston Health Foundation and its supporters rallied to assist with the immediate needs of Johnston Health patients and staff. Who could have imagined that over a year later, the need would be greater than ever?

Over the past few weeks, Johnston Health has set and broken census records with as many as 60 COVID patients and high numbers of very sick medical patients. With all beds filled, this surge has placed great strain on our staff members who are exhausted and overwhelmed from this battle that began over a year ago.

How can you help?

Your monetary gift will help Johnston Health Foundation in our efforts to "bring a ray of sunshine" to healthcare workers on the front lines of the pandemic with visits from our wildly popular Sunshine Cart full of tasty snacks to energize our staff members and bring a smile to their faces.

We are also planning monthly appreciation activities from September - June like Reverse Trick-or-Treating and Cookies from Santa to bring a little extra joy during the holidays and beyond. If you are interested in sponsoring one of these activities, please email sol.halliburton@unchealth.unc.edu

Checks with "COVID-19 Response" in the memo line may be made payable to Johnston Health Foundation and mailed to:
