Marketplace

Rather than celebrating an in-person Marketplace event in 2020, we are taking this time to focus on raising funds and awarenesss for our beneficiary, Safe Kids Northeast Georgia.

Marketplace 2020 is led by Volunteer Tri-Chairs Ashley Sliger, Natalie Challen and Brittni Curtis. One hundred percent of proceeds will benefit Safe Kids Northeast Georgia, led by Northeast Georgia Health System. The tri-chairs look forward to planning an in-person celebration in 2021.

What Your Donation Can Provide

$5,000

Provides funding for up to 10 local schools to be funded for the Signs of Suicide (SOS) Prevention Program. Currently, the SOS Program is funded by Safe Kids which allows for both Hall County and Gainesville City Schools to offer the program to their students. SOS is an evidence-based program that teaches students how to identify the signs of depression and suicide in themselves and their peers.

$2,500

Provides funding for up to 45 convertible car seats which are distributed at monthly Car Seat Safety Classes in partnership with the Hall County Health Department to reach low income families in Hall County. On average, about 20 convertible car seats are distributed at each monthly Car Seat Safety Class to parents or caregivers in need. As a result, this ensures the safety of an average of 20 children per month in Hall County.

$1,000

Provides funding for approximately 175 helmets. Helmets are distributed to children who are in need in partnership with Hall County Schools, Barrow County Schools and Gainesville City Schools to promote wheeled sports safety.

$500

Provides funding for approximately 50 life jackets for children to use through the Safe Kids Northeast Georgia Life Jacket Loaner Stations that are set up in five different beaches on Lake Lanier to promote water safety. Each Life Jacket Loaner Station contains 8-10 life jackets in a variety of sizes for children to enjoy and return to the station at the end of the day.

Hi there! I can help quickly answer common questions about COVID-19. Please pick one of the options below.

Sent by: Northeast Georgia Health System
  • I don’t feel well. What do I do?
  • Can I visit a patient?
  • How many COVID-19 cases do you have?
  • How can I prevent COVID-19?
  • How can I help NGHS?

If you have a fever and cough or difficulty breathing, these steps will help you find the care you need and limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in our region:

  • Call before you come

    Please call your doctor's office or an urgent care clinic for advice about where you should go for treatment.

  • Call 9-1-1 for emergencies

    Calling 9-1-1 is always the fastest and most efficient way to get proper treatment for medical emergencies.

  • Consider staying home and taking advantage of an E-Visit

    When symptoms strike, connect with a provider through an E-Visit instead of traveling to the urgent care or the doctor’s office.

    Learn more about E-Visits from these area practices:

The best way to avoid infection is to avoid exposure. Here are simple steps you can take to lower your risk of catching or spreading illness:

  • Wear a mask – a cloth face cover can protect other people in case you are infected. Everyone should wear a cloth face cover in public settings and when around people who don’t live in your household. Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
  • Avoid close contact – maintain 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household. If someone in your household is sick, maintain 6 feet of distance from them as well.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after touching tissues.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces to help prevent the spread of germs
  • Monitor your health daily –  Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19. Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.
