Dedicated Support Began During the Unprecedented Pandemic
Each of you may have a COVID-19 Pandemic story of someone who helped you or that you were able to help.
The McLeod Health Foundation was blessed to have generous donors like you who responded with gifts, encouragement and unique ways to say thank you to our front-line workers.
One special supporter, Shalomi Dadush, his wife Karen and son, Simon, began their relationship with the McLeod Foundation during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Shalomi and his family became aware of the Foundation through family members who are employed at McLeod Health Seacoast.
The Foundation staff quickly learned that when they called on Shalomi, he always answered with, “My friend, how can I help you today?”
As owner of several businesses in the Ocean Drive area of North Myrtle Beach, SC, Shalomi is well-known for his warm, giving spirit. As one of the first donors during the pandemic, Shalomi and his family began their involvement with McLeod by providing food for the staff at both McLeod Health Seacoast and McLeod Health Loris.
“We faced challenges we never knew existed or could imagine. Staff needed encouragement. Shalomi’s nourishment was just the lift they needed,” stated Christina Jackson, McLeod Foundation Director.
As Shalomi learned more about the many ways the McLeod Foundation provides support beyond clinical care, he continued his generosity. He was delighted to be one of the sponsors for the successful Jockeys and Juleps event held this past Spring.
Recently, Shalomi and his family have made a generous financial commitment to support programs funded by the McLeod Foundation. It is his family’s desire that the funds are available when they are needed the most.
This incredibly generous donor and his family stressed that, “Wherever McLeod needs the help -- we want to be there.”
