Dear HFMA Region 2 Friends & Colleagues,
We have been following closely the heart wrenching pictures and reports regarding the extensive damage caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria to our HFMA friends and colleagues in Puerto Rico, a member of Region 2. The effects of these storms will be felt for years and their impacts on the communities, first responders, healthcare leaders, and professionals will likely last a lifetime. In times like these, community matters. Our commitment to the communities we help and serve is our primary focus. Because of our strong desire to do something, we have set up a website to raise funds for our fellow HFMA members and their loved ones in Puerto Rico during their time of need.
Please note, that donations made to the above may not be considered tax deductible, please consult your tax professional for determination.
You may also contribute to these fundraising organizations:
· The American Red Cross
· Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) (This page offers resources for you and your community)
· Government of Puerto Rico
To offer your support and help, or to obtain additional information, please consider using the resources provided above. Additionally, HFMA National has dedicated a page on their website to provide updates regarding the effects of these storms as well as Hurricane Harvey. Please check this page often for updates.
HFMA sends its heartfelt thoughts and wishes to everyone impacted by these storms and for those who are stepping up to help during these extraordinarily challenging times.
