There’s lots of ways to help out during this time, but one thing that’s always appreciated is a good meal. As the restaurant industry is one that is particularly vulnerable during this time, you can help both nurses and local businesses by providing meals for healthcare workers.
As The Eagle recently reported, “Many generous residents... sent money so restaurants could provide meals to the medical community, to give them a break from the long hours taking care of the sick. It must have meant a great deal to our doctors and nurses to be able to sit for a bit and enjoy good food.” Next time you order takeout, explore if any of your favorite local restaurants offer ways to help nurses in the Brazos Valley.
Nursing is more than a career — it’s a calling. And in these unprecedented times, the nurses who are going into work each day and risking their health deserve every bit of respect we can give them. So whether it’s your sister, son, friend, or healthcare provider in this fierce line of work, take the time to tell them thank you this week. We are so proud of our St. Joseph Health nursing family!
