WTMJ Cares is powered by Watry Industries and Premier Aluminum.
Sponsored by Aurora Health Care, Drake & Associates, Siding Unlimited and Annex Wealth Management. WTMJ Cares is supporting The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County.
Among The Salvation Army’s many initiatives is the Helping Hands project, which provides assistance and food to health care workers.
“We’re providing them packed lunches (during) the shift changes,” said Major Steve Merrit, Divisional Commander.
“(Healthcare workers) are working long hours. They find themselves in facilities where the cafeterias may not be open.”
The doctors and nurses are appreciated, according to Sarah Francois with Progressive Community Health Centers.
“(The meals) really do brighten everyone’s day,” Francois explained. “We couldn’t be more grateful.”
