Why are we doing this?

Latrobe Valley frontline Healthcare Workers need our support

With the State’s latest surge in COVID-19, increasing case numbers and the ongoing rise in hospitalisations, our healthcare workers need our support.

Latrobe Valley’s healthcare workers are currently working long shifts, caring for our most vulnerable community members and getting very little respite with what at times appears like no end in sight.

We can’t change their workload, but we can brighten up their day with a free coffee from our community and a supportive message.

If you would like to offer our healthcare workers thanks and show them how much you value their tireless efforts, then please use this site to shout a coffee or share your words of support.

Kindness doesn't have to cost you anything

A big thank you to all the staff at LRH and Maryvale. The staff I’ve had over the past year, from the ED to I-MED have been nothing but supportive, kind and professional.

My interactions with various health professionals during this time, both pandemic-related and otherwise, have been fantastic. Our local health staff have always been courteous, efficient amd professional. Thank you all for your extra work during what, for many of you, has been a stressful time. You are appreciated.
