As you may know, this month is National Nurses month. This year in particular it has taken on a whole new meaning. These underappreciated nurses who have been at the front lines of this pandemic are our heroes. We will never be able to repay them for risking their lives every day to protect us. Thousands of them have come from all over the country to attend to sick New Yorkers. What we can do and should do is show them our gratitude.
Please enjoy this video highlighting the Barasch McGarry Health Care Workers Lunch Program. We are grateful to have donated over 1,300 lunches to nurses at hospitals in the NYC area; all from local restaurants. And, we’ll continue doing it. Look at the expressions on the faces of the nurses when they realize that they don’t have to eat their lunch out of a vending machine!
We made this video in honor of every nurse who is putting their life on the line, now and always. It is remarkable and inspiring to see how, when confronted with a crisis, these nurses voluntarily dropped everything to help total strangers. God bless them all.
We continue to be inspired by our health care professionals and the selfless efforts they make every day. We’ve also donated more than 50,000 masks to every firehouse across New York City, police officers at 37 NYPD precincts, sanitation workers, correction officers, Port Authority officers, and other front line workers who are going to work every day and selflessly risking their own safety. I thank the countless active and retired responders who have helped us deliver the masks to those who need them.
Please help us spread the word by sharing this video.
