Honor Devereux’s Healthcare Heroes on #GivingTuesday

At Devereux, we often speak of our “Devereux family,” which is comprised of staff, the children, adolescents and adults we are privileged to serve, and their families, as well as those who have generously supported our mission, from advisory board members and donors to volunteers and event attendees. We are incredibly grateful for each and every one of you.

The pandemic has shined a light on the heroic and tireless efforts of the millions of essential workers across the country. Devereux team members are among that amazing group of people, providing outstanding care and support – both in-person and via telehealth – for the individuals and families we serve. 

Our staff – who are heroes in every sense of the word – demonstrate tremendous strength, courage and resilience each and every day. We invite you to read some of their stories on our website’s Healthcare Heroes page, and learn how these committed and compassionate individuals are serving and inspiring others. 

On Tuesday, Dec. 1, show your gratitude and appreciation for our amazing staff and help support their efforts to provide opportunity, possibility and joy to the thousands of individuals we serve this holiday season. 

About #GivingTuesday 

#GivingTuesday – founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation – is celebrated annually on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving.

In 2019, individuals, families, organizations and communities across the U.S. came together to show their support for the causes and issues that matter to them, raising more than $511 million in donations from 27 million online gifts. Since its inception, more than $1 billion has been raised online in the U.S. from the #GivingTuesday campaign. 

Be the difference! 

Join Devereux on #GivingTuesday in supporting the tens of thousands of individuals and families we care for every day. 

Here is how you can help:

  1. Make a gift by visiting our fundraising page or donate online.
  2. Share a personal message of hope and gratitude with our Healthcare Heroes, which you can email to HealthcareHeroes@devereux.org.
  3. Select Devereux as your charity of choice when you shop on Amazon Smile.
