New Jersey Nurses Raise Money for Emergency Staff

 In Nurses Weekly

Nurses at a New Jersey medical center are paying it forward to their fellow staff members during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Chrissy Schroeder works at Morristown Medical Center. She and her other coworkers raised money through donations on social media. Their purpose? To get Starbucks orders for all COVID-19 designated units and the emergency room staff.

After raising more than $1,500 in under three hours, they opened up an ongoing tab for all staff to get whatever they wanted at Starbucks.

“It was so nice to bring happiness and love to fellow front line healthcare workers,” Chrissy says.
