Stories from the Heart: Gulf Winds
Thanks to Gulf Winds Credit Union for their generous donation of $65,000 to Ascension Sacred Heart in Pensacola to help the hospital purchase personal protection equipment (PPE) for its staff. This donation is equivalent to the cost of one month’s worth of PPE under normal circumstances at Ascension Sacred Heart Hospital.
“During this difficult time, we are grateful to have companies like Gulf Winds Credit Union who are willing to use their resources to fund support of personal protection equipment. Their gift will help hundreds of employees and patients who are impacted during this time of greatest need.” — Carol Carlan, President of Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation
