A message to our donors
In coordination with CDC and Kansas Department of Health guidelines, LMH Health Foundation will postpone the Hearts of Gold Gala until October 17, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we know this is the best decision to protect the health and safety of our community members.
We are wishing you and your family the very best during this challenging time, and I hope you’ll stay up-to-date on the latest information related to COVID-19 by following LMH.org/coronavirus.
We have had a number of donors reach out to ask how they can support our community. Here are two ways you can make an impact for those affected by challenges like COVID-19:
- Support LMH Health employees affected by the COVID-19 crisis by making a gift to the CARE Fund.
- Support LMH Health patients unable to pay for medication, equipment and other items by making a gift to the Help & Healing Fund.
Our kind community members Jeff and Mary Weinberg have already made a significant lead gift in support of LMH Health employees affected by COVID-19. We are grateful for their leadership and generosity. If you are interested in supporting this effort, you can make a gift online at lmh.org/donate.
Please know that while the foundation office is currently open by appointment only, you are more than welcome to reach out if you need anything at all in the coming days.
Thank you for supporting your community hospital and clinics. Your generosity ensures that LMH Health can provide exceptional care for our families, neighbors and friends, which is more important now than ever before.
