Feeding the Front Lines … and much more
Individually prepared meals, flowers, cookies, and more have been donated to Valley Health System since the middle of March in support of our hardworking staff. These generous donations from the community have been met with gratitude from the frontline staff. “Valley employees have been deeply touched by the outpouring of support from our community. The nutritious food donations have been appreciated by all of us. It is wonderful to know the very community we serve and care for is doing the same for us,” said Caitlin Burke, Manager, Patient Care Services.
Here are just a few examples of the outpouring of support from the community:
- Girl Scout Troops throughout the region have been donating boxes of their famous cookies, accompanied by hand-made signs of hope and encouragement.
- Managerie Caterers in Englewood delivered kosher meals to Valley for those celebrating Passover
- The communities of Ramsey and Wyckoff, Neiman Marcus, as well as Brooklyn Imports Inc. and the Polish American Chamber of Commerce donated hundreds of Easter baskets and treats
- Wilson Horticulture and Landscaping in Hawthorne provided staff with lilies and daffodils
- Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks have donated coffee and breakfast treats to hospital staff.
