Hennepin Heroes Fund

They were called heroes when they stayed at the frontline of COVID-19, risking their lives for our community. Over two years later they remain, even as we experience historic highs in patient volumes and trauma care with fewer team members to share the load. It has taken a real human toll.

Addressing healthcare disparities and providing exceptional care without exception, remain hallmarks of our team of caregivers.

You can show your appreciation with your financial support, a care cart sponsorship and words of encouragement.

Sponsor a Care Cart

Care Carts are a wonderful way to say thank you to our team at Hennepin Healthcare. Rotating each month, eight carts are brought to inpatient hospital units and our emergency department. Stocked with beverages, snacks, breath mints, scented hand towels, and lip balm, these take away items bring a much needed break and relief to our dedicated providers. All team members are welcome including: nurses, doctors, nursing assistants, interpreters, social workers, spiritual care, environment and food services.

You can support one month, several months or a full year.  Gifts in honor of someone or an organizational sponsorship can be recognized with signage on the cart(s).  If you would like to sponsor more than one month, simply donate in increments of $300.

If you'd like to mail in your contribution, please send a check with the memo Hennepin Heroes to: Hennepin Healthcare Foundation, 701 Park Avenue, S8, Minneapolis, MN 55415
