Milwaukee-based business pauses company launch to donate care kits to front-line workers
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A Milwaukee-based business that specializes in luxury vacation rental management, is pausing its recent company launch in southeast Wisconsin and shifting gears to help support local front-line workers.
"Poshabodes" worked with local companies to make a collection of self-care items to donate to health care professionals at Aurora Sinai Medical Center.
The 250 care kits have 15 items including a washable laundry bag to store and transport their clothes after a shift, self-care items and on-the-go-snacks, along with a handwritten thank you note.
The kits will be given to the medical staff on all shifts in the emergency department, intensive care unit and an additional area that works with coronavirus patients.
"With the front-line workers in particular fighting COVID-19, we wanted to do a little something for them that was bringing a little bit of joy, luxury, pampering for them at a time that is so dark and challenging," said Jennie Korth, co-founder and CEO of Poshabodes.
The care kits will be delivered to Aurora Sinai Medical Center Monday, April 27. They are also putting together 100 kits that people can buy online, and will be shared with another local health care facility.
