This past holiday season, departments throughout Sentara provided holiday gifts and food for 13 Sentara families in need through the H.O.P.E. Fund for the Holidays Program. The H.O.P.E. Fund for the Holidays Program is coordinated by the Sentara Health Foundation as a way for employees to help fellow employees during the holidays.

Families who received help from the H.O.P.E. Fund for the Holidays program were assisted by the H.O.P.E. Fund previously in the year. The H.O.P.E. (Helping Overcome Personal Emergency) Fund is an emergency financial resource for Sentara employees who are experiencing catastrophic hardship or loss through no fault of their own. This fund is made possible through Sentara employees’ donations.

Thank you to all of our departments that made this program a success and to our Sentara employees for continuing to donate to the H.O.P.E. Fund throughout the year!  Sentara employees may visit Wavenet or contact the Sentara Health Foundation at 757-455-7976 to learn more about the program.
