HOLYOKE — All Holyoke Medical Center employees working on Jan. 8 received a free boxed lunch courtesy of the Polish National Credit Union (PNCU).
“As we return from our holidays, it’s important to remember that not everyone was able to spend time with their loved ones, like our healthcare professionals who provided care around the clock. Unfortunately, as a nation we are experiencing the biggest spike of positive cases since the pandemic began. Now, more than ever, it is important to provide support to our overworked healthcare heroes in ways big and small,” said Michael Sugrue, executive vice president, chief operating officer, and chief lending officer at Polish National Credit Union. “It is in giving that we receive, and PNCU understands that. We are hoping this serves as a reminder that there is always a reason to give and be thankful. We are deeply grateful to each and every one of our healthcare professionals, and this is but a small token of our appreciation. Thank you for all you do.”
Hamel’s Creative Catering in Holyoke catered the boxed lunches.
“Holyoke Medical Center would like to extend its sincere appreciation to Polish National Credit Union for this incredibly generous donation,” said Spiros Hatiras, president and CEO of Holyoke Medical Center and Valley Health Systems. “Our team continues to provide safe, compassionate care to our community members and are truly grateful for the recognition and support.”
