COVID-19 has created unexpected challenges and strain for our dedicated frontline staff. The STA Foundation has established an Emergency Relief Fund to support the immediate and unprecedented needs we are experiencing, and we need your help.

Childcare facilities and schools are closed and with children at home, getting to work inside the hospital has become more difficult. The COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund will help pay for employee’s additional childcare expenses and keep them in the hospital working to save lives.

The safety of our teams, families and partners is our top priority. Traditionally, our teams are supplied protective equipment from the hospitals we work in. With supply critically low, for the first time, we must provide PPE to our frontline staff.

Please consider supporting these critical needs and contribute to our COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund today.

Our caring and compassionate staff offers hope to those facing the devastating loss of a loved one.
