70 Hospitals | 4,400+ Frontline Workers | $82,000 in Product
In May, as the first wave of COVID-19 cases hit the US, health care workers were working long hours to combat this deadly virus. Many were needing to bath and even sleep at the hospital. Native partnered with ER, UCI, and COVID units across North America to provide much needed hygiene kits to essential workers.

Native is proud to be one of FCancer’s largest cash sponsors, providing essential funding for all of their programing.
