About Our Auction
‘The Purple Light Project’- an initiative that is intended to bring attention and support to our emergency psychiatric patients in Hartford Hospital’s Emergency Department. Purple is for the ‘purple pod’ which is the psychiatric section of the ER. Light is to represent our light always being on for those suffering from a mental health crisis. With earned money, we are buying fleece blankets -- both for warmth & for comfort and a reminder that HH ED is always there if you need help. We will also buy Uber vouchers so that a patient may reach a shelter or needed treatment.
About Hartford Hospital; The Purple Light Project
There isn't anyone who doesn't know someone who is REALLY struggling right now and we're feeling it at Hartford Hospital ER. The purple pod at Hartford Hospital ER provides crisis assessments and level of care determinations but the needs are so much more. People in our community are needing food, clothing, books while waiting, transportation vouchers, over the counter medicine, blankets, free counseling, etc. 100% of anything you give will go DIRECTLY to our behavioral health ER patients. Behavioral health patient needs tend to get over shadowed. Let's put the LIGHT on mental health needs!! A kind word for our social workers, nurses and doctors goes a long way. Heartfelt thank you.
