Giving Wednesday dedicated to Health Care Heroes

ABC television affiliate KETV 7 of Omaha is encouraging the community to support Omaha-area health care heroes during its Giving Wednesday on Dec. 16.

Giving Wednesday is a periodic event KETV holds to bring attention to the needs of various local nonprofits. This time the station is encouraging support for health care workers at Nebraska Medicine, CHI Health and Methodist Health.

All contributions will be divided equally to support health care workers at these organizations – many of whom are experiencing unique challenges as they fight on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.

The portion of support that Nebraska Medicine receives will help enable the medical center to directly address the needs of its employees who may face a personal crisis or emergency now and in the future. Unfortunately, the tolls of the coronavirus pandemic have caused unprecedented challenges to frontline health care workers and others throughout the health care system.
