Small Acts, Big Impacts: Thank a health care worker

Share this page:

Acts of kindness can energize and warm the souls of both the person sharing goodness and those receiving it.  Our local health care workers deserve our appreciation and a little extra kindness during these tough times.  Below are some suggested ways to directly support front line health care workers through donations or an encouraging note.  

UCHealth: Memorial Hospital Central, Memorial Hospital North, Grandview Hospital or Pikes Peak Regional Hospital

  • First, send an email to Amy Dempsey at amy.dempsey@uchealth.org to coordinate any donations. In the subject line, please write: #smallacts campaign.
    • Order meals from a local Colorado Springs restaurant to feed a unit at any of our four hospitals. Please provide one-week notice.
    • Buy gift cards for local restaurants and provide them to the hospital to purchase meals for health care workers.
    • Purchased prepackaged snacks and drinks that will be placed in breakrooms throughout the hospitals to remind employees of community support.
