At a time of uncertainty, there is one assured truth: healthcare workers are heroes.

Norix Marketing Coordinator Paige Kingsley and her pup, Lola, get ready to delivery restaurant gift cards to CDH

The Norix family is continually humbled by those who sacrifice on the front line in the war against the spread of coronavirus and COVID-19. Every day, they continue to put themselves in harm’s way for the good of their community. For this, we are eternally grateful.

In asking how Norix can help show our gratitude, we’ve learned that even modest offerings such as a prepared meal can relieve stress and bring a small amount of comfort to front-line workers and their families. Healthcare employees are dealing with newly sporadic work schedules and over-time, which can throw day-to-day plans, including meal planning, into chaos.

Socially distant living has affected the restaurant industry hard as well. Joining friends and family over a prepared meal in an enjoyable ambiance is something we’re all looking forward to doing again. In the meantime, we can help support our local restaurants by ordering curb-side take-out and gift cards.

Ann Marie Bianchi of the Central Dupage Hospital Community Affairs Department accepts gift cards for distribution to healthcare workers.

To show our gratitude to our community, it makes sense to pair healthcare workers with a contribution of a local restaurant gift card. We picked some of our favorite small restaurants and purchased $25 gift cards to distribute to our local healthcare workers at Central Dupage Hospital. Our Marketing Coordinator, Paige Kingsley, led the organizational efforts.

“It’s a small way to thank the doctors, nurses and other front-line healthcare workers for their dedication and commitment,” said Paige Kingsley, Norix Furniture. ”

At Norix, we’re continuing to do everything we can to help flatten the curve of infections and relieve the strain on our local healthcare facilities. While we may feel distant from our friends, family, and neighbors, we hope small displays of gratitude such as this can accumulate, and we’ll all come out of this as a healthier, stronger, and more united community.
