Showing our gratitude and support: Moe’s Home Collection in the community

May 8, 2020

These unprecedented times have left many people facing unimaginable hardship. At Moe’s Home Collection, we want to do what we can to help. As a family-run firm that holds people at the heart of our business, being an active member of our local community has always been important to us.

Food For Thought

Food Banks Canada has reported a 20 percent increase in demand across the country. Food is a basic human need that everyone should have access to. Sadly, as the coronavirus outbreak continues to force businesses to close and lay off employees, many people are struggling to feed themselves and their families.

That’s why Moe’s Home Collection pledged 10% of sales during our April campaign to Greater Vancouver Food Bank, enabling us to donate food to hundreds of families in need in our community.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, Greater Vancouver Food Bank has made four of their five food distribution locations significantly larger and have extended their hours of service, in order to meet the growing demand. We’re pleased that our donation has allowed more people to access the healthy food they need and deserve.

A Home Away From Home

Another way in which we’ve been able to support our local community is by donating furniture to St Paul’s hospital in Vancouver. Providence Health Care staff are working around the clock and are sometimes unable to get back home between their shifts. We wanted to show our gratitude to these frontline health workers who are putting themselves at risk to fight the pandemic.

With the help of Patty Yoon (Patient Care Manager in the Mental Health Program) and Jen Duff (Acting Program Director of Maternity & NICU), we were able to donate Moe’s Home Collection products to transform the comfort and visual appeal of six physician call rooms, the nursing station, patient lounge and other spaces. This includes comfortable new beds, stylish desks, lamps, side tables and artworks to brighten up the interiors. The positive feedback from PHC staff has made our day.

“With kids at home, I can’t go back and forth between the hospital and home while a patient labours. A comfortable space at the hospital to work and sleep gives me and my family so much peace of mind,” says Dr. Donna McLachlan, Head of Obstetrics for Family Practice, SPH.

“The obstetrics senior call room is so welcoming now – and it’s much better for organizing our textbooks, scrubs, and everything else needed by busy residents who often spend more time at the hospital than at home,” says Dr. Heather Armstrong, PGY4 UBC Obstetrics & Gynaecology.

“Honestly, our call room looks like a nice hotel,” says Dr. Judy Wolfe, Medical Program Director, Paediatrics.

Knowing that we’ve been able to improve the working days (and nights) of these essential healthcare workers, even in some small way, brings us great comfort. It’s these moments of positivity that keep a smile on our face and keep us going through these challenging times.
