Employees Help Hurricane Victims

While no gift can repair what was taken away from affected families this hurricane season, Kettering Health Network employees came together to help support the areas hit b Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

In response to Hurricane Harvey, the network’s Missions Department provided nearly $230,000 worth of Personal Protection Equipment to relief teams.

For those affected by Hurricane Irma, Kettering Health Network collaborated with the Grandview Foundation and Mary and Harold Rieck to hold a week-long donation drive. Collecting personal hygiene products, cleaning supplies, and much more, volunteer workers were able to fill a 53-foot semi-truck. The truck left on September 26 for Sebring, Florida, the second-hardest hit county in the state. Once there, the items will be distributed by the network’s sister hospital, Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center, through the local food bank.
