Viva Kia drives home its commitment to community!

Today, University Medical Center Foundation of El Paso received more than 100 face shields from Viva Kia through Kia Motors America and its program "Accelerate the Good" in response to COVID-19. The masks will benefit University Medical Center of El Paso and its healthcare heroes.

"We are grateful for the hard work and dedication these frontline medical workers exhibit every day to save lives in our community," said Chris MacDonald, Marketing Director, Viva Kia.

"UMC Foundation is thankful for Viva Kia's ever watchful eye over the community," said Estela Casas, Executive Director of UMC and El Paso Children's Hospital Foundations. "Every donation helps!"


If ever there was a time to show a nurse how much they are appreciated, now’s the time.



To that officials and volunteers with UMC and El Paso Children’s Hospital Foundations made care packages to 1,250 nurses at both hospitals as a token of appreciation.

The Foundation collected items for the care packages, with goodies donated by individuals and companies from across the Borderland.

Those who contributed include: Georgina Williams, Western Tech, Pepsi Beverage Company, Superior Health Plan, El Paso Health, Whataburger, Walgreens, Red Lobster at Joe Battle, L’Oreal and Nothing Bundt Cakes.

Marathon Petroleum


Can you feel the love? To thank Marathon Petroleum for its enormous donation of N95 respirator masks, University Medical Center of El Paso's Public Affairs Office unveiled a banner today with signatures from nurses of both hospitals! In the photo, the nurses are wearing simple masks because the N95 masks are used for direct patient care or surgical environments.

Hot tamale!

A gallon of red chile sauce, a tablespoon of love, and a sprinkle of good intentions makes for a delicious batch of tamales.   

Georgina Williams's husband, Gethin, is a doctor at University Medical Center and she wanted to express her gratitude to him and other associates on the frontlines. What better way to show some lovin' than to cook up some tamales?

This afternoon Georgina and Dr. William's delivered 6 dozen piping hot, red chile tamales.

Georgina's doing her part to be El Paso Strong! You can, too, by donating to our COVID-19 Compassionate Care Fund by clicking here:

El Paso Health Car Seat Safety Program

University Medical Center Foundation of El Paso and the El Paso Health Car Seat Safety Program are following guidance from health officials to limit events/activities that result in a large gathering. As a result, we have decided to postpone our monthly car seat safety events until further notice.

This is an unprecedented, challenging time for everyone. While we understand that many families count on us to provide child passenger safety education and car seats, the health of our volunteers, technicians, and families who attend our events, is the priority at this time. It is our hope that everyone will do everything in their power to significantly reduce the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and ensure that people in our community, especially the elderly and medically vulnerable, remain as healthy as possible.


Here's how we make a difference.

With every check written, every dollar donated...we recognize that there is a question in the back of every donor's mind...will my donation really make a difference? Am I really having an impact?

Every penny donated to UMC Foundation stays right here at home.
