Northern Health Foundation: Shout a Coffee to Healthcare Workers

‘Shout A Coffee to Healthcare Workers’ is an initiative by Northern Health Foundation for the community to show their gratitude for staff who are working tirelessly to keep our community safe. This initiative complements Northern Health focus on wellbeing by encouraging a little time out.

The campaign which runs till the end of the month, got an extra boost when Northern Health Foundation, Board member Tricia Lee, paid a special visit to Northern Hospital Epping to shout 1,000 coffees for frontline medical staff.

The Riverlee Foundation has a longstanding relationship with Northern Health Foundation. Over the years, Riverlee have funded important medical equipment for Northern Health, and most recently, a three-year PhD scholarship.

The Lee family is passionate about giving back to the community and always willing to support a good cause.

“We are very grateful for the hard work of all healthcare workers in Victoria. They are working so hard to keep us safe. We wanted to do something to show our appreciation. When we came across this campaign, we thought it was the perfect way to connect directly with the staff at Northern Health and to show we care,” says Tricia.

Nurse Unit Manager, Rhiannon Cooper, is extremely grateful for the recognition saying, “Being in full PPE for up to 12 hours a day is extremely exhausting. However, it’s nice to see the community recognises all our hard work and effort by getting behind the ‘shout a coffee’ campaign and supporting all health care worker across Northern Health campuses.”

Pina Di Donato, Director, Northern Health Foundation, said, “We thank Riverlee Foundation for their continued support of Northern Health, its staff and community.”
