Sunshine Ace Hardware has partnered with NCH Healthcare System and community physicians to provide care packages to all 5,000 employees of NCH, a collaborative effort that recognizes all health care workers who are helping keep the community safe.
To assemble the care packages, Sunshine Ace secured 10,000 rolls of toilet paper and 5,000 bottles of Green Ox disinfectant cleaners. Lipman Family Farms also provided fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables.
“Health care workers are the true heroes in the battle against coronavirus, and they deserve every bit of recognition and support we can provide them during this difficult period,” said Michael Wynn, President of Sunshine Ace Hardware. “Because so many doctors, nurses and medical staff are working long hours, they aren’t able to pick up certain supplies between shifts. We want to support them in every way possible because they are always here to support us, when we need them most.”
Another care package will be provided in the next two weeks.
Sunshine Ace also helped secure N95 safety masks, antibacterial soap, sanitizer, cleaning supplies, coveralls and shoe safety covers to NCH and Lee Health to ensure staff, patients and visitors are fully protected.
