Posted by Isabella Perdichizzi — May 19, 2020
LAWRENCEVILLE, GA - Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties’ Suwanee/Duluth Office, celebrated ICU nurses and staff who have been treating those who have been suffering from COVID-19. By working with The Meal Bridge, an organization dedicated to supporting local businesses and hospitals, the office was able to provide meals for those working on the frontlines of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
“Gwinett Medical Center is the largest hospital in our county, and they do so much for the communities that we serve,” said Andy Willis, Senior Vice President and Managing Broker, Suwanee/Duluth Office. “Those in the healthcare industry are sacrificing so much for everyone, and I am so happy that my team and I were able to take the time to recognize their incredible work. We cannot thank them enough.”
“All of us at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties are deeply grateful to the healthcare workers who are working tirelessly to help keep our communities safe,” said Rick Swan, Vice President and Co-Managing Broker, Suwanee/Dulth Office. “A special shout out to the Amazing ICU Nurses at Northside Hospital Gwinnett. Thanks for all that you do!”
The Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties’ Suwanee/Duluth team worked together in raising funds and was able to deliver over 50 meals to the hospital on National Nurses Week, Wednesday, May 6th. Organized by Marta Rodriguez, a real estate specialist for Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties, the Suwanee/Duluth Office worked with The Meal Bridge to not only provide food for the nurses but also support Smokin Gold BBQ, a local Gwinett County restaurant.
“Being able to witness the heroism displayed by our healthcare workers has been incredible,” said Marta Rodriguez. “I am so proud of the way that our office came together to support our community’s healthcare workers while also helping local businesses. I look forward to doing this again very soon.”
Smokin Gold BBQ owner Dan Dieterle and master chef Blake Mirring made and delivered the pulled pork BBQ plates to the hospital. Many Berkshire Hathaway associates were in attendance wearing masks and had posters in hand to show support to all of the ICU nurses and medical staff. The Lawrenceville Police Department also made an appearance to support the company’s efforts.
“As a citizen of Gwinett County, I know firsthand the remarkable impact that this hospital and all who work there have on our community,” said Dan Forsman, President and CEO, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Georgia Properties. “Our country’s healthcare workers and first responders have continued to work selflessly for people they don’t even know, that is something that I will never take for granted. I am proud of our Suwanee/Duluth Office for pouring into our community and I am humbled to have them all a part of our team.”
