National Nurses Week usually runs from May 6 – 12, but this year the American Nurses Association has expanded it to be a month-long celebration to expand opportunities to elevate and celebrate nursing. United Hospice will continue to honor our frontline heroes, as we do every day.
We’re also thankful for the amazing support our nurses have received from the community. Some of the recent donations we have received for our nurses and support staff members include:
- 125 cans of Harney & Sons Tea
- $5 coffee and bagel gift cards for each employee, approximately 100 total
- Hundreds of homemade fabric facemasks
- 1,000 KN-95 masks
A great big shout out also to Senator James Skoufis for working tirelessly for our communities. Senator Skoufis’ office was able to procure PPE for the front line healthcare heroes, including our front line staff at United Hospice. Senator Skoufis presented PPE in late April to Regina McGrade, UH Director of Development. The Senator and his staff could not have been more helpful and are much appreciated.
This outpouring of gratitude and generosity is appreciated by all of us. Honoring life, giving care and bringing comfort is our focus every day. But, community is truly the foundation of what we do. As we thank our frontline heroes, thank you also to our wonderful community.
