This donation is the combined remaining amount after expenses from the "Adams County First Responders Thank Gettysburg Hospital Staff" event on April 29, 2020.

The donation will benefit the Wellspan COVID-19 Employee Assistance Fund, which helps Gettysburg Hospital and Wellspan employees in need with mortgage and rent payments, utilities, groceries, and more.

Thanks once again to all the individuals and businesses in our community who made our original April 29 Parade of Thanks possible. It was funded entirely through their generosity, and all remaining contributions were included in this donation.
