Giving Tuesday at CommunityHealth
The holiday season is just around the corner, and we invite you to kick it off with us on Giving Tuesday!
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic,
CommunityHealth’s role has been more important than ever. Throughout the

entire days off work that can keep our patients from being able to access the
care they need. But not everyone has the technology available to conduct a

while continuing to meet the highest standards of care for individuals who
might not have anywhere else to go.
This year has brought us all incredible challenges, but together we can end it in high spirits. We are extremely grateful for your donation and support because no one should go without healthcare, especially during a global pandemic.
In addition, on GivingTuesday, we invite you to join us for an incredibly fun night of 90's trivia hosted by our Associate Board. At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people closer together in our local communities. Click here to RSVP for Trivia Night.
