Manor College donated baskets with energy-boosting snacks and treats for the workers, nurses, doctors and support staff at three local hospitals.
On Jan. 2, Lauren McDonnell, class of 2016, delivered care packages to staffers at Jefferson Abington Hospital, Holy Redeemer Hospital and Jeanes Hospital.
Along with the snacks and treats were handwritten cards to say “thank you” to staffers in multiple units.
“Being an RN myself, I remember in the beginning of the pandemic, people would bring us snacks and treats when I was a bedside nurse at Abington,” said McDonnell, who serves as the director of health services at Manor. “It really would change our whole day, not only having the delicious snack, but thinking, ‘Wow, they took the time out of their day to do this for us.’ ”
McDonnell added, “People forget the pandemic is still very real – especially for those seeing COVID and working with COVID every single shift. We hope these snacks give these healthcare heroes hope and bring a smile to their faces.” ••
