ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. – Macy’s in Mishawaka donated $10,000 to the Saint Joseph Health System’s “Take Care Program” today to support frontline workers. 

The health system created the “Take Care Program” in summer 2020 to fight burnout-inducing stressors faced by frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The program provides these workers with supportive tools like virtual “destress” webinars and staff dedicated to supporting the mental and physical well-being of the Health System’s employees.

Macy’s donation will go directly towards the creation of “respite rooms” which will serve as quiet spaces for workers to decompress in at the hospitals and at the administrative building.

Funds will help buy furniture, lighting, plants, and aromatherapy tools for the respite rooms.
