This year, National Nurses Week falls in the middle of a global pandemic when we need to say “thank you” more than ever.
North Texas Honda dealers are using this week to show gratitude for health care workers who are on the front line.
“We partnered with Baylor University Medical Center, Cook Children’s Medical Center as well as Baylor Scott & White Health Center and we’re providing care packages for their frontline staff,” Helpful Honda Team of North Texas representative Devin Ellis said. “We’re going to have everything from grocery gift cards to a bath bomb to help them relax, healthy snacks and hand sanitizers.”
But, the team decided to take their Random Acts of Helpfulness philosophy a step further and provide free gas for health care workers. Team members will pop up at gas stations across North Texas and give free gas for frontline health care workers as they drive to and from their shifts.
The latest news from around North Texas.
“All you have to do is just show your proof – your ID or your medical badge that you work at a hospital or care center,” Ellis said.

“We just want to say that there’s a bunch of people in the community supporting you and you guys are dealing with a challenging situation. You may not see the support hourly, daily or enough, so we just want to say that there are a bunch of people thinking about you,” Ellis said. “We really respect what you are doing and we are just so grateful you are putting our safety first even above your own needs in many circumstances.”
