Donation to support COVID 19 Response ($50,000)
The Arcare Family Foundation provided a grant of $50,000 to Northern Health to support its response to COVID-19. The Northern Health services area has been hard hit by the pandemic, in particular Northern Hospital in Epping where many patients have been hospitalised.
In receiving the grant Andrew Williamson, Executive Director Public Affairs said, “On behalf of Northern Health, I would like to thank the Arcare Family Foundation for its donation to Northern Hospital Epping to support us in providing the best possible care for our COVID-19 patients and the Northern community.”
The grant was made on Friday August 7th as Arcare, and other aged care providers across the country, celebrated Aged Care Employee Day. The Arcare Family Foundation Committee provided the grant on Aged Care Employee Day as recognition for the amazing efforts of Arcare team members during this difficult time, as well as the fantastic staff at Northern Health who are dealing with a significant proportion of Victoria’s COVID 19 patients.
