KeyBank, in partnership with the First Niagara Foundation, is providing $60,000 to support Catholic Health’s work on the frontlines of the local COVID-19 response.
A press release said, “The donation will provide funding for essential supplies and materials that are desperately needed to fight back against the coronavirus, save lives and protect health care workers.”
“We are proud to support the health care workers in Western New York who are making a difference every day at the heart of local relief efforts to help ensure all patients get the care they need during this unprecedented time,” said Elizabeth Gurney, executive director of the KeyBank and First Niagara Foundations.
