APPLETON, Wis., (WFRV) – A local family wanted to make sure their caregivers know that their hard work during the pandemic is appreciated.
WFRV Local 5 was at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant Tuesday where a hearty lunch was gifted for the COVID-19 staff at Ascension St. Elizabeth.
The family went to the non-profit group called “Family Caregivers Rock” which along with Thrivent was able to arrange the free lunch and add some specialty t-shirts with words of thanks and encouragement.
“It’s humbling for really, even us, ” said Cindy Thompson of Family Caregivers Rock. “They could make a wish for themselves, but they do it on behalf of someone else.”
The board of Family Caregivers Rock is made up of caregivers past and present.
They know the strain but also the silver lining to being a caregiver.
