Appreciating Nurses on the Frontline: A Caring Cubs Home-Based Project
April 8 - April 15
Research shows that doing kind & helpful actions calms the mind. By releasing “good” brain chemicals to counteract and soothe the “stress” ones, altruism buffers our systems during anxious times. At Caring Cubs, we believe wholeheartedly that being a caring community member is one of the best ways to cope with life’s uncertainties. We hope that doing this project together as a family, from your home, will help buoy you through this time.
Appreciating Nurses on the Frontlines
During this stay-at-home time, cubs and their families will send messages of gratitude & encouragement to frontline nurses on Ahuja Medical Center’s nursing team.
University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center is a 144-
bed community hospital focused on patient and family-centered care and the principles of evidence-based design. Comprised of over 500 nurses, Ahuja’s nursing team strives to empower, advocate and innovate to achieve excellence in human caring. As hospitals adjust to the state’s regional plan for COVID response, Ahuja’s nurses will continue to be on the frontlines.
Our goal is to make cards for as many Ahuja nurses as possible!
How It Works
Registered families will receive instructions, sample messages, and a mailing address.
We ask that you mail your family’s cards/drawings/messages by Wednesday, April 15th.
Please plan for each registrant to make at least 5 messages.
Supplies You Will Need
- Paper, cards, or postcards
- Something to draw/write with
- Optional: stickers or collage materials
- One mailing envelope that will fit your family’s collected creations
- Postage stamps
** If this timeframe does not work for you, no worries. There will be a Caring Mail project each week this month.
We hope you are as excited as we are to volunteer with this unique project.
Because we want to ensure that we make a hearty impact, we ask that families only register for home-based projects when they can commit to the dates & deliverables.
