The Schneck Foundation

Not Every Hero Wears a Cape


As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) infiltrates our communities, hospitals, and homes, the need to support those on the frontlines is critical. These frontline heroes have worked tirelessly in our community to proactively educate and prepare for COVID-19 and its impact.

As you may know, Schneck confirmed its first positive case the evening of March 21, switching all the preparedness simulations to present situations. Schneck regularly prepares and drills for the unexpected and we were ready and will remain ready. Heroes have been activated and will remain so for as long as needed.
 
Heroes need support; after all, they are human too.  To support our staff, emergency services, and community, Schneck Foundation has established Not Every Hero Wears a Cape to connect those working on the frontlines with those who have a desire to give.
 
Schneck’s Employee Giving Group, EPiC, will be delivering “bottomless” snack baskets to every department in the hospital. The baskets will be filled with grab-and-go items to refuel staff day or night.
 
In addition, each week the Foundation will be delivering food to our first responders in the field including the City and Police Department, Seymour Fire Department, Jackson County Emergency Medical Services, Stat Flight, and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department. Food will be purchased from locally-owned restaurants who also need our support through this crisis.
