It’s another way people for people to express their appreciation for our health care workers.
The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation (FVHCF) put a call out on Thursday (March 26) for people to share their artwork and words of encouragement to doctors, nurses and other health care staff who are working around-the-clock during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are collecting artwork and messages of support and encouragement to hospital staff from children (and adults if you want to send in something) in the Fraser Health Region,” reads the post on the FVHCF’s Facebook page.
The artwork and comments will be shared on social media and in email blasts to hospital staff to cheer them up.
Earlier this week, two Chilliwack women welcomed everyone to join them for Solidarity at 7, a nightly noise-making ritual where people bang pots and pans and applaud health care workers at 7 p.m. from their front porches and balconies.
People can email their artwork and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org with their first name, age, and city. If they have a family member in health care they wish to give a shout out, you’re asked to add that too.
Messages of support can also be left on the FVHCF Facebook page.
The Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation raises funds for vital equipment and programs funded or endorsed by the Fraser Health Authority. They serve the communities of Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.
