MSUFCU Supports Sparrow Health System's Challenge Response Fund and Care for the Caregiver's Fund
During these challenging times Sparrow Health System is actively managing the challenges of the coronavirus outbreak. Sparrow Hospital continues to work for the health and safety of our communities. Due to the pandemic, costs of operating have increased daily. Sparrow has a Challenge Response Fund to assist with these increased costs as well as a Care for the Caregiver’s Fund to support their staff.
The Challenge Response Fund is used to purchase additional protective equipment for Sparrow Caregivers working the front line to combat this disease, ventilators and other equipment to help manage the medical needs of those in the community coming to Sparrow daily. In addition, funds will be used to purchase supplies to effectively screen, test and more.
The Care for the Caregiver’s Fund is designated specifically to help Sparrow Caregivers in times of challenge. The fund is available for Sparrow Caregivers in need of financial assistance during the current COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the fund is available for Caregivers that endure financial hardship due to a health issue, accident, house fire, or other unforeseen tragedy.
Members of our community, local businesses and MSUFCU have come together to support Sparrow Health System amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“Sparrow cares about its community - to see the community care about Sparrow Caregivers this way leaves us so humbled,” said Sparrow Hospital President Alan Vierling. “This speaks really to the heart and character of the community and especially to MSUFCU. The generosity is overwhelming.”
