Hometown Healing: Supporting Our Hospital Heroes is an effort to show how much we here in eastern North Carolina appreciate all the extra work a portion of our community has had to put in over the course of the pandemic.

From the cleaning crews to the nurses, the doctors to the cafeteria workers, everyone has, of course, been doing their jobs… but they’ve also been doing so much more. Whether they’ve been the one constant for a patient whose family cannot visit because it’s not safe, the hand to hold during scary procedures, or the germ blaster during room turnover, we salute them.

We hope that those of us who have been infinitely safer at our jobs outside the hospitals or in our homes will join us in raising funds to help anyone who might need it.

100% of the proceeds will go directly to the participating hospitals to benefit their employees.

(ECU Health Foundation is partnering with WITN to assist in collecting and distributing the funds designated to the Hometown Healing General Fund equitably based on a bed count formula to all of the participating hospitals.)
