“Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve seen a consistent need in the community for care, services and resources,” said Lois Bernstein, Chief Community Executive for MultiCare. “We are proud to partner with organizations whose mission is to improve the lives of those in our community.”
MultiCare’s Community Partnership Fund has given more than $3.6 million in its first six years to hundreds of groups across the state to support programs that improve the health and well-being of communities.
