Team Member Emergency Fund

The Tampa General Hospital Team Member Emergency Fund aids team members in times of financial hardship and since April 1, the Team Member Emergency Fund has aided over 150 team members who have had financial hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the school year starting up, and many families facing the hard decision of choosing virtual school, homeschooling, or in-person school, these financial hardships have come in the form of needing school supplies and the technology needed to keep up with the virtual option.
?
Thanks to the vision of our Director of Volunteer Services, Angelique McCormick, TGH implemented measures to support our team members through the Team Member Emergency Fund by including school supplies, laptops and more so our team members¡¯ children can succeed in the virtual classroom or in-person.
