Inspira Health announced on Wednesday it has received a $10,000 award from the Community Foundation of South Jersey’s South Jersey COVID-19 Response Fund.

“We are so proud to provide Inspira Health with a grant from the COVID-19 Response Fund,” Andy Fraizer, executive director of the Community Foundation of South Jersey, said. “The heroes at Inspira have done so much for our community, and this grant is only a small token of our appreciation for their dedication to defeating this virus.”

The grant will allow Inspira to fund emergency assistance and recruit and hire more staff through its Human Resources Department.
