In honor of the recent National Nurses Week, Stop & Shop provided special indulgences for nurses at hospitals in three of the states it serves: Mount Sinai South Nassau in Oceanside, New York; Yale-New Haven in New Haven, Connecticut; and Massachusetts General in Boston, Massachusetts. From bubble bath and hand masks to an ice cream cart filled with frozen confections, Stop & Shop’s contributions were made to treat nurses working on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Long Island, Stop & Shop hosted an ice cream social for the nurses at Mt. Sinai South Nassau. The neighborhood grocery store wheeled in an ice cream cart full of 1,500 Stop & Shop brand novelties including sundae cones, strawberry éclair bars, frozen fruit bars, ice cream sandwiches and Greek yogurt bars. The frozen treats were given out in the hospital’s main lobby when the nurses changed shifts.
In Boston and New Haven, Stop & Shop packed and donated 850 self-care gift bags for nurses at Massachusetts General and Yale-New Haven. The gift bags featured health and beauty care items to help nurses unwind, including soothing bath and body wash, foot masks as well as tea and chocolates.
“Stop & Shop is committed to serving, and nothing makes us happier than serving those who take care of our customers and communities,” said Jennifer Brogan, director of community relations for Stop & Shop. “We are so grateful for the work these nurses do, and we hope our deliveries brightened their day.”
This Nurses Day donation is one of the many ways Stop & Shop has been supporting healthcare workers throughout the pandemic. From providing 5,000 meals a day to frontline healthcare workers at hospitals across the Northeast to most recently providing hundreds of meals weekly to medical workers at various vaccine sites, Stop & Shop is committed to nourishing the communities it serves.
