BATON ROUGE, La. – A group of local companies – 46 in all –
teamed up to provide gift cards to the nursing staff at Baton Rouge General.
The result of a fundraising campaign spearheaded by Transformyx and PartnersOne,
the group raised over $32,000, giving each nurse a $45 PartnersOne gift
card that they can redeem at hundreds of local businesses in Baton Rouge.
“The employees at Transformyx wanted to give back in a meaningful
way, and we are excited that we helped make this happen,” said Jim
DuBos, managing partner and CEO of Transformyx. “To have such amazing
participation shows a united message to our frontline workers -- we appreciate
them and their efforts caring for our community.”
Jim DuBos and Pete Rizzo, of PartnersOne, will present the gift cards to
Baton Rouge General’s Chief Nursing Officers Monica Nijoka and Joni
Lemoine, and Baton Rouge General Foundation President Erik Showalter on
Monday as an early gift to start Nurses Week.
“When the Transformyx team reached out to us, we jumped at the chance
to help support our healthcare workers here in Baton Rouge,” said
Rizzo. “We know life is hectic for them right now, and we’re
happy to make things a little easier, whether it’s a meal they don’t
have to worry about or cleaning services to ease their mind.”
The top contributors of this effort were Transformyx, Baker Printing, Roto
Rooter, Guaranty Media, Green Escapes Landscapes, Road Dawg Electrical,
Daryl's Automotive, French Market Bistro and Mansurs On the Boulevard.
