MICHIGAN CITY, Indiana | From left, LaPorte Community Federal Credit Union CEO Robbie Masterson and Marketing Director Jarrod Allen present a check for the Franciscan Health Foundation to Franciscan Health Michigan City Vice President for Mission Integration Sister Petra Nielsen. The $850 donation came from funds collected from credit union members and from “dress-down” days, where employees were able to dress casually for a small donation.
The donation will go toward the Franciscan Health Foundation Preparedness & Response Fund to assist in the fight against COVID-19. Donations to the fund have enabled the healthcare system to purchase chest compression machines, oxygen flow devices to assist with breathing and recovery in COVID-positive patients, infrared thermometers for temperature checks of employees and visitors and sanitizing stations to clean equipment. Donations can be made to the Preparedness & Response Fund at FranciscanHealthFoundation.org/COVID-19.
