The Alliance works closely with others at UMMC to provide ongoing support to several initiatives throughout the year. For instance, UMMC Volunteer Services uses the patient needs fund to provide many essential items for patients and families alike. Patients are supported through items such as reading glasses, newspapers and even clothes when needed.
Patients' families are cared for by the Alliance through goodie bags in the emergency department (for when family members don't want to leave their loved ones, but have been there an extended period of time), a roaming coffee cart, toiletry kits and meal vouchers for families travelling long distances to be here. Your donations help support these critical efforts and make a lasting impact on patients and families every day here at UMMC.
