“Everyone gets a piece”

A note left alongside the donation stated how the donor intends to have the donation used. The donor wants the money to go directly to the staff, from floor cleaners to nurses. The donor wants everyone to have a piece. The note went on to say,

“Thank you for standing up (and staying up!) to care for our community… This humankindness is what makes you heroic.”

This donation goes to show that outsiders recognize and respect their sacrifice.

The Dignity Health Dominican Hospital has a website accepting donations if you’d like to help them out.
