After being inspired by her first NOMV Advocate Outreach Event, NOMV volunteer Kelly Drescher Johnson decided to give back by spreading some love to the Boston, MA area.
Kelly noticed that hospitals in her area were facing staffing shortages and caseload increases, which created additional stress for the staff. As a team member she also knows staff can also go long stretches without something to eat because of their dedication to patient care. So she ordered platters of cookies from a local bakery and hand-delivered them to four emergency hospitals for the staff. Kelly says that the joy on their masked faces at a simple act of compassion made it all worthwhile.
If you’re inspired by their work, consider signing up to be a NOMV Advocate in your local community!
