Westerly Community Credit Union donates $10,000 to the South County Health COVID-19 Relief Fund
Westerly Community Credit Union recently donated $10,000 to the South County Health COVID-19 Relief Fund.
This donation will help South County Health offset significant unbudgeted COVID-19 expenses, such as converting patient rooms to negative pressure rooms that meet infection control requirement for COVID-19 patients and supplying PPE equipment desperately needed by the frontline to keep patients and people who are caring for them, safe.
“Westerly Community Credit Union is greatly supportive of South County Health,” stated Stephen White, President/CEO of Westerly Community Credit Union. “We are very fortunate to have an organization of their caliber in our community and know how essential they are. We appreciate them and are happy to help support them, especially during these unprecedented times.”
“I can’t say enough about the community support South County Health has received during this COVID pandemic,” said Aaron Robinson, President/CEO of South County Health. “This generous donation from Westerly Community Credit Union comes at a critical time as patients are starting to return for medical care they’ve put off. Thankfully, this will help offset some of the costs associated with the additional protocols and safety measures we’ve put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
