12 Days of Thanks

Date: Dec 07 - Dec 18, 2020

Join us as we show our Support for Elkhart County healthcare Heroes!


Starting December 7, 2020 the Elkhart County 4-H Fair Board invites organizations and businesses to inundate Elkhart County healthcare facilities with small tokens of appreciation. To show our gratefulness for their sacrifice during the COVID-19 pandemic, our board will kick off the campaign by delivering a load of snacks to Goshen Hospital on December 7th. Our goal is to have at least 23 other business or organizations join us over the next 12 days making two deliveries per day to varying facilities – starting with an organization that will match our efforts on December 7th at Elkhart General Hospital.

Here’s how you can join us:

  • Pick an available date between December 7th and December 18th that works best for your organization.
  • Select a healthcare organization impacted by COVID-19 in Elkhart County that you would like to thank. Examples include hospitals, urgent care centers, long-term care facilities and nursing homes, COVID testing sites, etc. If you need help selecting a healthcare facility, check the box and our team can suggest a facility.
  • Sign up using the form below.
  • Plan how your organization would like to say “Thank You”. Guidelines and suggestions are listed below, but creative ideas are welcome! You decide how big or small to make your gesture.
    • Make sure you contact the healthcare center in advance.
    • If you select one of the hospitals, a member of our team will contact you to help coordinate with those facilities.
  • On your selected date, say a big THANK YOU to your recipient healthcare center!
  • If you're unable to sign up for a day, consider making an individual donation!

Thank You For Helping Us Thank Our Hometown Healthcare Heroes!

Need some ideas? Here are a few to get you started!

Thank You's can be big or small. You can select an entire facility or just a particular floor or shift or department. Make a plan that suits your organization's budget and creativity.
