A relief fund has been created to help healthcare workers, community and social service agencies impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Southern Illinois Healthcare has established the new fund called SIH COVID-19 Relief Fund.
SIH says the fund will help support healthcare professionals, staff, and the needs of patients during the crisis.
In addition to the monetary funds, SIH said individuals and businesses are donating face shields, fabric masks and other needed supplies.
Supply and equipment donations will be accepted Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. at the entrances of the SIH System Office on the southeast side of University Mall in Carbondale.
