The SteriCares Hardship Fund was created to help employees who are facing financial hardship immediately after a natural disaster or an unforeseen personal hardship. The Fund relies primarily on individual donations from employees and support from SteriCares to fund this program. Every contribution helps and when combined with the donations of others can provide a tax-free grant (USA) to help a fellow employee in need when they are facing the unexpected.
You can make a voluntary ongoing gift or one-time gift through our secure site using your credit/debit card or directly donate through your payroll.
