First to Goal Fund to Benefit Front Line Staff and First Responders

On Friday, March 27, the Kalispell Regional Healthcare Foundation received a generous $150,000 donation from Candy and Eddie DeBartolo and Family to create the First to Goal Fund, which will support frontline health care staff as well as area first responders such as police, fire, ambulance, and quick response units. The purpose of the fund is to provide them with the support, equipment and supplies they need to reach their goal of emergency preparedness, caring for ill patients, and eliminating the spread of COVID-19 in northwest Montana.

The DeBartolo family invites the Flathead Valley to join them in supporting those on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic.“On behalf of my family, we are proud to support the first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Eddie DeBartolo. “We would like to urge other community leaders to join us in this very important cause to help our local heroes. We will continue to support this fund until the virus is gone and we send our love and gratitude to the entire Flathead Valley and urge you all to please stay healthy and well.”
