Duluth, MN – maurices, a women’s apparel brand with 900+ stores across the U.S. and Canada, announced today that it is donating $250,000 to multiple rural community hospitals to support healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID‐19 pandemic. As part of this donation, BVRMC will receive a donation.
“With maurices stores in more than 900 communities, we are proud to support our local healthcare workers who are on the frontlines treating patients in rural hospitals. These individuals are truly hometown healthcare heroes,” said George Goldfarb, maurices President & CEO.
Goldfarb added, “This escalating crisis has transformed the way we think and work. Like other organizations, we are looking for ways we can support our associates, our customers, and our communities. Often rural hospitals don’t get the support they need, and by providing them with a monetary donation they will be able to purchase what they need most in this fight against COVID‐19. We have been in touch with many of the hospital administrators who have told us the timing for this donation is perfect.”
maurices said they selected BVRMC and other rural community hospitals in markets that are representative of the brand’s full chain.
“These are challenging times in health care and we appreciate maurices for helping BVRMC. This money will help us purchase protective equipment and supplies for our team,” says Katie Schwint, Executive Director of Community Development.
