550 St. Mary Health Care Workers Will Get A Free Valentine's Meal | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

A Bucks County philanthropist wanted to show his appreciation for local nurses — so he's buying holiday breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


Gene Epstein, a retired car dealer who is known for his constant and creative gifts to community members, will be paying for meals for all 24 hours of Valentine's Day at St. Mary Medical Center on Monday.


Some 550 health care workers will be able to enjoy a "special" meal at the on-site restaurant, courtesy of the Gene and Marlene Epstein Humanitarian Fund. He said they plan to decorate with flyers, banners, and balloons for a festive atmosphere.


"I wanted to express the community's appreciation for them, and to do something so that they feel that somebody really cares and acknowledges what they've been through," he said.
