The events of the last several weeks have changed all of our lives in ways that were previously never imaginable. As we continue to adapt to the current climate, we also want to thank those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic who are working tirelessly to make sure that we get through these unprecedented and uncertain times.
As a small token of our endless appreciation, Flag & Anthem has decided to host a social media gift card giveaway throughout the month of April, where we will randomly select four first responders, healthcare heroes, essential workers or military personnel to win a $150 Flag & Anthem gift card.
Hero Spotlight: Officer Lucas Montero
Our first front line hero spotlight - and winner of a $150 Flag & Anthem gift card - is Officer Lucas Montero of the El Segundo Police Department in El Segundo, California. Officer Montero is a hardworking public servant and father, who continues to put others before himself, despite these hard times.
Hero Spotlight: Hannah Harberts ICU RN
Our second front line hero spotlight - and winner of a $150 Flag & Anthem gift card - is Hannah Harberts, a dedicated ICU nurse at Parkwest Medical Center in Knoxville, TN. Hannah always puts her patients first. Currently, many of her patients are COVID-19 patients who are feeling isolated and alone, and fighting to stay alive. Despite these hard times, Hannah continues to provide each of her patients with exceptional care. She is always there to reassure them that they are not alone and that she will be there alongside them, every step of the way.
Hero Spotlight: Cody Gautereaux, Paramedic
Our third front line hero spotlight - and winner of a $150 Flag & Anthem gift card - is Cody Gautereaux, a paramedic in rural east San Diego County. This remote setting creates unique challenges for Cody and his team. The current pandemic has stretched the paramedics of San Diego county thin but Cody continues to work hard to give the citizens the highest level of care possible.
Hero Spotlight: Sergeant Andrew Disalvo
Our final front line hero spotlight - and winner of a $150 Flag & Anthem gift card - is Andrew Disalvo, a dedicated police officer, protecting and serving the people of Kettering, Ohio. Despite the dangers that the COVID-19 pandemic presents, Sergeant Disalvo WANTS to be on the front lines and help his community in this time of crisis.
Thank you to everyone who nominated their heroes, and a huge thank you to all of the essential workers who are ensuring our safety and providing lifesaving measures during these unprecedented times.
