On behalf of everyone at CWA, we want to THANK YOU for everything that you do as healthcare workers on the front lines of this Covid 19 pandemic. On Tuesday at 5PM we held car rallies at every major hospital in WNY to thank healthcare workers. We worked with labor unions and community organizations to turn out over 100 cars.

The Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation announced Thursday it is giving $500,000 to help front-line caregivers in acute care hospitals in Western New York, upping its support of emergency responses related to Covid-19 to $2.75 million in the past four weeks.

The foundation wants the funds used primarily to help nurse aides, environmental and food services staff and others who it says "may not have access to as many financial and social supports and are playing equally critical roles in the healthcare system every day."
