Catholic Health: Anonymous donors provided meals to health care workers during Holy Week


Fri, Apr 17th 2020 07:00 am

From Catholic Health:

During the fight against COVID-19, there will be a number of unseen heroes. They are hidden behind masks, tucked into laboratories and small offices, or walking into patient rooms after discharge, but they will all make a significant impact. Four anonymous donors recognized these health care workers at all four Catholic Health’s acute sites – Kenmore Mercy Hospital, Sisters of Charity Hospital – Main Street Campus, Mercy Hospital of Buffalo, and Mount St. Mary’s Hospital – during Holy Week, which began on April 5, Palm Sunday.

Special Delivery for Health Care Workers

Deliveries included meals from Salvatore’s Italian Gardens to Kenmore Mercy Hospital and Sisters of Charity Hospital, Main Street Campus; Pita Gourmet to Mercy Hospital of South Buffalo; and The Delaware to Mount St. Mary’s Hospital.

“COVID-19 takes no breaks, even during Holy Week, which means many of our health care workers will not have the opportunity to enjoy special meals with their loved ones this Easter,” Craig Harris, vice president of development, foundations of Catholic Health, said last week. “These generous donors wanted to show their appreciation for the dedication of our Catholic Health associates and ensure they would have a warm meal to enjoy.”

Giving Back to Health Care Workers
