How to Help Those Affected by Recent Natural Disasters and World Events
Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the recent devastating natural disasters and recent world events and to those employees who continue to wait for word from friends and loved ones in impacted areas. For those who would like to donate, cash donations to established charities continue to be the fastest and most effective way to help. The American Red Cross is accepting donations online or by calling 1-800-HELP-NOW (1-800-435-7669). Read a note from Partners HealthCare about other ways you can help.
