CLEVELAND — MetroHealth has established a program called the Helping Hand fund to help people under quarantine for coronavirus to get the food and medical supplies they need.

The MetroHealth Institute for H.O.P.E. is coordinating the effort.

“People are calling in with specific needs,” said Susan Fuehrer, president, Institute for H.O.P.E. “A cash donation provides an efficient and effective method for meeting those needs, including timely delivery of supplies to someone’s doorstep and verification of the delivery.”

MetroHealth says that medications will be handled by the MetroHealth Pharmacy and through CVS. The institute will coordinate to have the food and medicine delivered.
