CHICO, Calif., Nov. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Enloe Medical Center will join the #GivingTuesday movement on Nov. 27, inviting support for Enloe employees, affiliated employees, medical staff, volunteers and patients who lost their home or were displaced due to the fire.
"There has been an outpouring of support for our community since the outbreak of the Camp Fire. #GivingTuesday is another way for people to embrace each other, recognize the start of the holiday season and support those most adversely affected in our community," said Jolene Francis, Enloe's director of Advancement and Communications. "There are many funds for Camp Fire relief that deserve support. It's a long road ahead for so many of our friends and neighbors, so we are encouraging people to give where their heart is this holiday season."
This year, Enloe's #GivingTuesday initiative involves a downloadable Facebook photo frame that participants can place around their favorite profile picture to spread hope and goodwill throughout the community, while raising awareness for this important day of giving.
