Flu season is right around the corner, and the Ruth U. Fertel/Tulane Community Health Center and Brinton Family Health and Healing Center is partnering with Groupon Grassroots to offer flu shots to uninsured and underserved patients.
You might be familiar with Groupon’s great deals on a variety of items, from hair salons to four-star restaurants, but Groupon Grassroots campaigns inspire local citizens to support projects that aid the community. Campaign organizers were impressed with the great work that the center is doing in the New Orleans community and wanted to help the cause.
By donating $20 to the campaign, you can purchase one flu shot for a community member in need. All of the money raised through the campaign will go directly to the center.
“The flu is a serious disease that can often lead to hospitalization, especially for vulnerable populations. It is important for patients, especially those 65 years and older, to be vaccinated. We are so happy that Groupon is giving us a chance to better prepare our patients this flu season,” says Leah Berger Jensen, co-executive director of the center.
The campaign will run October 1-7 in the New Orleans market. If you live in the New Orleans area, sign up for Groupon emails here. You can still support the campaign if you live in other areas. Check Facebook and LinkedIn for updates on the campaign.
