Protect The Heroes  -- Public Fundraising Campaign for Hospitals:  The AHA (American Hospital Association) team has created a new public campaign to directly connect the public with their local hospital’s COVID fundraising campaigns.  This is a national effort to help get hospitals what they need during this crisis including, but not limited to,  PPE and employee assistance. Please visit protecttheheroes.org to search for the local Wisconsin hospital that you would like to donate to. Donations go directly to the hospital that is selected via that hospital’s  Foundation.

Many local organizations want to help you and your hospital through this difficult and challenging time. Please reference the  Hospital Member Resources document for various resources and information for you.
