The Community Health Foundation is dedicated to improving the health of Kay County. In recent years, the biggest challenge to our community's health has been the COVID-19 virus. The Community Health Foundation responded to the pandemic through:
Financial & material support - The Foundation purchased face masks and cleaning supplies for local schools and the senior center as well as donated to the United Way's COVID-19 relief fund and RSVP's meals for seniors. The Foundation also supported the hospital employees in Ponca City with baskets of snacks.
Volunteering - Our director and Board members volunteered at area COVID vaccine clinics.
Education & advocacy - The Foundation sponsored contests for teenagers to share about COVID-19 vaccines on social media platforms and produced several videos to educate the community about the COVID-19 vaccines.
