DCH Foundation Helps Pay It Forward: Donations for M.D. Anderson in Houston Needed

The DCH Foundation wants to help with relief efforts for Hurricane Harvey, which has left so much of Texas devastated. Monetary gifts are being accepted for MD Anderson employee relief through Sept. 15.

The flooding from Harvey forced MD Anderson Cancer Center to close its doors for outpatient services, appointments, and surgeries at all Houston-area locations. At last check, limited outpatient operations were underway.

It’s all about giving back. In a press release, The DCH Foundation says:

When we were suffering through the tornado, hospital employees like us all over the country sent us gifts. Within just a month of the tornado, The DCH Foundation collected $400,000, mostly from other hospitals, and distributed it to those who needed help getting back on their feet. We may not all be able to be in Houston helping with the clean-up or building the city back but your generosity can certainly help make this disaster just a little less awful.

We learned during our tornado experience that a single large check to their foundation, designated to employee recovery, is the best way to help. We looked at our giving to Norman Regional in Joplin, Missouri, and know that we can, with a little effort, reach a goal of $10,000 for these folks who are really suffering.
