All proceeds the Florida Health Care Association raises for the fund will be directed to relevant personnel.
According to Florida Healthcare Association (FHCA).
Through its 501c-3 tax-exempt organization, the Florida Health Care Education and Development Foundation, FCHA established a “Hurricane Relief Fund” to help assist staff in its nursing homes who have been impacted by the devastating storm. All proceeds will be donated to long-term care workers.
Donations can be made online here or by post with donation form.
Hurricane Ian left a path of damage and destruction in many parts of Florida, impacting the lives of thousands of heroic caregivers working in our member nursing homes and assisted living facilities,” FHCA said in announcing the fund. “Our goal is to help as many of them as possible through your generous donations. All donations we receive will go directly to those in need.
The FHCA said Thursday morning more than 20 nursing homes in southwest Florida had lost power and were relying on generators.
