Let's Stay Connected
A beautiful reminder of the community's gratitude and utmost appreciation for the compassionate care being provided by our front line John Muir Health heroes. This banner hangs at the front entrance of the John Muir Health, Walnut Creek Medical Center.
Gratitude Is Shown In Acts
"Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts."
—Henri Frederic Amiel
Gratitude and the desire to help, especially in times of need, go hand-in-hand. In fact, it is said that gratitude is the social glue that fortifies relationships and serves as the backbone of human society.

We are fortunate to live in a community that has found some extraordinary ways to show its gratitude. In our last edition of "Let's Stay Connected," we highlighted a local businessman who had a strong desire to raise funds for protective equipment for our front line care providers. He started a GoFundMe peer-to-peer fundraising page. Please link to his page and share with your personal social networks so we can watch it grow!

Community member and "fantastic food fundraiser", Kerin Megibow, also created a GoFundMe page. Kerin wanted to show her gratitude to the John Muir Health front line staff as well as help local eateries that would likely struggle during the current shelter in place restrictions. Her solution was to raise funds to purchase individually wrapped and temperature-safe meals from local restaurants and caterers to provide to our courageous front line heroes. Please link to her page and share with your personal social networks.

In a few days, we will share with you more hometown heroes who are either delivering smiles to the faces of our front line staff by filling their bellies, donating masks, gowns and gloves, or providing what they can through financial support to bolster our Community Relief Emergency Fund.
