St. Luke's Medical Center Opens "Free Grocery" For Its Frontliners
Good job, St. Luke's Medical Center!
St. Luke's Medical Center (SLMC) opens a makeshift grocery store, called the "Care Store," where their health workers can get essential items for free. This serves as a token of appreciation for their hardworking frontliners who continuously provide their services amid the global pandemic COVID-19.
The Care Store, which opened on the morning of April 3, offers different grocery items such as fresh fruits, bread, canned goods, and bottled beverages. It also includes health and grooming items, too.
In a letter addressed to SMLC's ER associates and doctors, they were each given a total of 2,000 care points which can be consumed in the Care Store. The letter states, "Once in a while, you will receive this message with corresponding points ready to be availed at the Care Store."
According to a post by SLMC, "A project of the SLMC executives, this makeshift store aims to provide the hospital's frontliners and their families FREE grocery items, as a token of appreciation for their hard work and selfless efforts to continuously provide patient care amid the COVID-19 crisis."
The Care Store is located at the Henry Sy, Sr. Auditorium of St. Luke's Medical Center Global City. SLMC is also opening another Care Store at the SLMC Quezon City branch on Tuesday, April 7, 2020.
