Today, we are especially grateful for our loyal donors. Yesterday, on #GivingTuesdayNow, over 200 of you stepped up to help raise nearly $150,000 for our COVID-19 Response Fund! That’s $150,000 that we can put toward research and relief efforts at @UNC_Health_Care – thank you! pic.twitter.com/KwVAhLEyHD
