The Erie Otters have teamed up with Tim Horton’s to provide free donuts and bagels to UPMC Hamot hospital nurses and employees on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic during National Hospital Week.
The Otters and Tim Horton’s delivered 30 dozen bagels and 30 dozen donuts to the hospital this morning.
“We are so thankful for the nurses and medical staff in our community that we wanted to provide them a reminder that Erie is thinking of them and has their backs,” said Aaron Cooney, the Otters Director of Broadcasting, Marketing, and Media Relations. “These are the heroes that are going above and beyond to help heal our community.”
The nurses and staff at UPMC have been working around-the-clock to provide the city of Erie exceptional care not only during the COVID-19 pandemic, but throughout daily life. The breakfast was provided as a “thank you” during National Hospital Week and on International Nurses Day for their hard work and dedication to their jobs every day.
