National Nurses Day is celebrated in May of each year as a part of National Nurses Week. This is the time where people all across the United States come together to celebrate nurses for their hard work and dedication. Now especially, frontline workers are crucial in how our country recovers from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that has killed almost 100,000 people. Many nurses and doctors are working around the clock and urging people to stay home to help flatten the curve.
Easterns Automotive Group along with their Pay It Forward partner Fox 5 DC decided to team up for something special. Maureen Umeh of Good Day DC took Fox 5 cameras with her as she visited the University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital Center in Cheverly, Maryland. She was greeted by CEO, Dr. Joseph Wright along with an army of nurses. Joel Bassam of Easterns Automotive Group joined in via video call to announce that they purchased over 100 jars of Combat Ready hand balm from Skincando for all of the frontline workers and essential staff. Constant handwashing can leave your hands extremely dry so this moisturizer will be perfect. The entire UM staff was truly grateful for the kind gesture.
Please continue to wash your hands, wear your mask, and practice social distancing!
If you know someone in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area that goes above and beyond the call and is worthy of being recognized, Click here to nominate them.
