WSNA is sharing the following letter from the American Nurses Foundation:
An overwhelming number of nurses acted in response to our message about the Texas Nurses Foundation’s appeal for contributions in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Thank you for your generous support.
With more disasters such as Hurricane Irma affecting our communities this fall, the American Nurses Foundation has now created a broader ‘Disaster Relief’ fund.
This fund will support nurses in their disaster response and recovery efforts in southeastern Texas, the Virgin Islands, Florida and other states affected by the recent disasters.
The American Nurses Foundation and the entire ANA Enterprise stand in solidarity with those affected. We encourage you to join with the power of nurses everywhere to help.
100% of the funds raised will be distributed to charities on the ground to benefit those in need as soon as possible.
We join you in sending positive thoughts and wishes for strength to nurses and the whole community. Thank you for your help.
