Pellegrino Healing Center donates 100 care packages to healthcare workers and other essential frontline workers at Vassar Hospital and beyond
In efforts to thank and support frontline workers amongst the COVID-19 outbreak, we are donating 100 customized care bundles.* The care bundles were designed to help the immune system, nourish the body, and lift the spirits of the hardworking and dedicated frontline workers of the local community. On April 29th, Pellegrino Healing Center team members delivered fifty-five of these care bundles to an entire floor of overnight workers at Vassar Hospital in Poughkeepsie. The remaining forty-five are available for curbside pickup at the center to ensure broader, and safer access for other frontline workers.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Any essential worker is encouraged to pick up a care bundle on Monday, May 4th between 9:00AM-11:00AM and 4:00PM-6:00PM. Special arrangements can made for anyone unable to make these times by calling the center in advance at 845-233-5672. This is being offered while supplies last, so please check our social media on Monday 5/4 for updates. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ *Each care package includes Premier Vitamin C, Plant Therapy Organic Germ Fighter Essential Oil, Emily Super Dry Skin Soother, and a Gift Certificate for a free session in the Pellegrino Healing Center Salt Cave. The care packages also include information about how to best use these products, as well as snacks including, pretzels, dark chocolate, and mints.⠀⠀
Pellegrino Healing Center Owner, Director, and Acupuncturist, Christine Pellegrino stated, “We want our community to know that we are here to help people heal from the emotional and physical strains of this pandemic now and thereafter. We will continue to lend a hand, to share our appreciation, and to serve as a safe and restorative space for our community to heal, no matter what.”
