Public Health Institute Launches ‘Blink Your Light for Healthcare Workers’

SPRINGFIELD — The Public Health Institute of Western Massachusetts, along with other partners in the region, have announced the launch of “Blink Your Light for Healthcare Workers,” a campaign that asks everyone in the region to blink a light in their homes, or a light that can be seen by others outside, every night at 8 p.m. for one minute. The campaign will kick off this Saturday, April 4 at 8 p.m.

The campaign — which will run every night until the state of emergency designated by Gov. Charlie Baker ends — aims to express collective gratitude for all healthcare workers tirelessly taking care of those most in need across the region during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other participating partners include the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, Tapestry Health, Human Service Forum, Rainmaker Consulting, Behavioral Health Network, and the Center for Human Development.
