Staying Connected in Times Of Crisis
It’s no exaggeration to say the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone, no matter where they are from, where they work, and how much money they have in the bank. The rise in unemployment also means a rise in the number of uninsured Texans, meaning that more people than ever before will need a place to turn for their health care. They can find that place at Legacy, but we need your help to continue treating our at-risk friends and neighbors.
More than 200,000 people in Southeast Texas rely on Legacy for their care each year, and we plan on being here for them on the other side of this crisis.
More than 30% of our patients are uninsured, and that number will increase significantly as more and more Texans lose their health insurance as they are laid off or furloughed.
69% of Legacy’s patients are living in poverty and many will be devastated as the unemployment rate continues to rise. These at-risk Texans need your help to stay healthy so they can go back to
There are many ways to support Legacy’s programs and services, from events benefiting School-Based Health Care and HIV services, to becoming a Legacy’s Little Readers Champion for pediatric literacy, or the #Task4Masks campaign collecting cloth masks for patients.

And our new partnership with DonateStock.com provides a free, easy way to extend tax savings of stock contributions.
