Pittsburgh Native Creates “Adopt-A-Nurse” Campaign

Pittsburgh native Bridget Coleman spent many days in Forbes Hospital as a child. “I was born with a hole in my heart,” Coleman told Pittsburgh’s Action News. She depended on nurses during these difficult times and now wants to give back.

“I was just thinking one day I wish I could do more. I wish there was something I could do,” said Coleman.

To show her gratitude for the efforts nurses have put forth during COVID-19, she decided to create thank-you lunch bags and ask the community to Adopt-A-Nurse to help her.

“Each make and take bag is a donation of $35, and I’ve purchased the goodies to put in them,” Coleman shared.

So far, she has sponsored 25 nurses at Forbes Hospital. She wants to raise enough money to include at least 100 more nurses and add more local hospitals.

“I just really want to do something little to give back to them,” added Coleman.

Coleman attaches a tag with the first name of the person who donated the $35, so that each nurse knows it came from one specific person.
