Local Credit Union and Pizza Co. Make Donations to Healthcare Heroes

Credit Union West

Credit Union West employees recently donated their own personal dollars to show their appreciation for the health care workers at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Westgate Medical Center. In association with the Travelling Pizza Company, the generously donated funds provided more than 100 free pizzas to hospital staff who are on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’re so appreciative of the commitment these health care heroes are making to their communities each and every day during these unprecedented times,” stated Karen Roch, President and CEO of Credit Union West. “Our team members wanted to provide a gesture that shows just how grateful we are for their selfless acts of service.”

According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, the total number of COVID-19 cases in Arizona has exceeded 7,900. Health care staff are invaluable in treating these patients and containing the spread of the virus. Many of these workers have been reassigned from their normal duties to assist the efforts in diagnosing and treating COVID-19 patients.

“The show of appreciation from the employees at Credit Union West means so much,” says Tina Brucato-Day, VP of Operations at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Westgate Medical Center. “We are so proud of our entire team who are working tirelessly to keep our patients and community-at-large safe.”
