“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

– Fred Rogers


In light of our uncertain and ever-changing circumstances, we feel it would be most helpful to highlight the helpers. Our healthcare community is strong, determined, and they are already doing everything they can as professionals, including sacrificing time with their families in order to take care of our most vulnerable and sick population. We have scientists and doctors researching and testing. We have military personnel helping to protect cities and administer testing. The people we aim to serve with Nightingale Benefits are the people who are on the front lines dealing with the COVID-19 virus directly. As avid supporters and encouragers of their actions, what can the rest of us do? Here are a few places to get some great ideas, spread and show love, and support those on the front lines. 🙂
