The Knox Foundation is an incredible asset to our community, and especially to University Hospital. When COVID-19 arrived in our area, the Knox Foundation recognized a need and made a generous gift to University Health Care Foundation. This gift helped defray childcare costs for front-line healthcare workers and helps offset unforeseen capital expenditures ensuring University Hospital Summerville was ready to care for Covid-19 patients, giving University the only campus dedicated to the care of Covid-19 patients.

South State Bank has supported University Hospital in many ways through the years: from event sponsorships to major gifts supporting capital campaigns, we know we can count on South State. This time, however, we thank South State for a generous gift to University Health Care Foundation as we helped defray childcare costs for front-line healthcare workers as COVID-19 shut down schools and daycares. Thank you, @SouthStateBank for all you do for University Hospital and our community!

"Our partnership with the University Health Care Foundation began in 2002 to help provide necessary resources,” said Ora Parish, Augusta market president for Bank of America. "We are continuing our commitment by addressing childcare needs for healthcare workers, while they care for patients in the Augusta community."

We appreciate our friends at @BankofAmerica for supporting University Hospital's front-line workers with a generous gift to University Health Care Foundation, helping defray the cost of in-home childcare during the COVID-19 pandemic. @OraParish

Erica is one of the 140 employees who received childcare assistance. She shares her gratitude for those who have donated to the Helping Hands Fund.

“Thank you for providing the help I needed for childcare for my daughter Jericka. I’m a single parent and have been donating to Helping Hands since I starting working for University in 2014. It’s nice to see these donations helping those who need it. Thank you all for everything you have done.”
Much love, Erica and Jericka
