Love In The Time Of A Pandemic

My daughter, Marena M., is a pharmacist at St. Lukes. When the hospital designated her assigned floor as the first “Corona” Floor, she noticed the fear among the nurses. She decided that night she would make a box full of snacks and encouraging words for them.

I reached out to my team at Direct Supply and invited them to join Marena in supporting the nurses at St. Lukes. Marena next reached out to several energy bar companies. This small act of kindness started a huge ripple effect. The small box of encouragement grew into cases of energy bars, bags and bags of candy, snacks, hand lotion and envelopes full of cards made by kids and adults! So many people were so thrilled they could help.

My son, Matthew, volunteered to be the drop off site in Wauwatosa. I live in Jackson and take donations to Matthew who then delivers to Marena. We figured out how to get everything to St Luke’s while maintaining social distancing!

I want to applaud my daughter for initiating this wonderful way to support the nursing staff. My coworkers, friends, family and community now have a way to say thank you to those risking their lives on the front lines during this pandemic.

One act of kindness really does start a ripple effect!
