The Indiana Health Care Heroes program is set to distribute at no cost to selected health care systems a special Thank You Indiana Artisan gift along with a 310-page commemorative book in a custom-designed gift box to our health care heroes.
Our first distribution of 4000 gifts will be to Franciscan Health.
Supporters of this community-wide program are widely diverse, from hospital vendors to business owners from the scientific community to local business leaders.
The Franciscan Health Foundation exists to support the programs and services of Franciscan Alliance, Inc. They are dedicated to address the ever-growing healthcare needs of our communities
The foundress, Blessed Maria Theresia Bonzel, was drawn to the ideals of St. Francis of Assisi, who left a legacy of faith characterized by selfless giving and the spirit of love; he loved every person without measure or discrimination. Blessed Mother Maria Theresia extended the ideals of St. Francis to America when she sent six Sisters from Olpe, Germany to Lafayette, Indiana in 1875 to begin a ministry of healthcare and education for the poor and neglected.
As the world continues to battle COVID-19 and contain its spread, there are hero stories playing out before our eyes. But there’s another more important story that will bring Indiana together and carry us through this crisis – and that is gratitude.
We’re seeing an outpouring of appreciation and goodwill for our Indiana healthcare heroes on the front lines against COVID-19. For putting the health of others above all else. For providing care and compassion in these unprecedented times. For being a light in the face of uncertainty.
Our program is a free gift we created that shows the flow of gratitude for the healthcare industry. The gift curates and collects gratitude.
