National Women’s History Month

During National Women's History Month, we're celebrating the amazing contributions of women who work tirelessly to make the world a better place. This year's theme focuses on healthcare workers; 80% of whom are women. Around the clock, dedicated caregivers and frontline health workers do their best to provide healing and promote hope to their patients. Do you know someone who works in a hospital, or do you visit a grandparent in an assisted living home? Healthcare workers help those who are in need of medical care or require extra assistance in looking after themselves. Caregiving is not an easy job, especially during an ongoing pandemic. While we've been social distancing or staying safe at home, many women who are essential health workers in our community continue to provide their valuable services. They are our superheroes. What can you do to thank a caregiver or a frontline health worker? Here are some suggestions for showing gratitude to those valuable people in our neighborhood:

  • Make a paper chain of kindness
  • Decorate a thank you coloring page
  • Gift cookies in a jar
