When Jonathan heard he wouldn’t be going back to school for some time, he decided he wanted to use some of his free time to say thank you to all the front line health care workers in his area. In Jonathan’s words, these are the critical workers who “take care of the people who get very sick.”

Taking inspiration from his time in Boy Scouts, he worked with his mother (a pharmacist at William Osler Health System) to put together “Survival Kits” to say thank you and, hopefully, make the daily lives of health care workers a little easier. A mix of practical and symbolic gifts, the thoughtfully-assembled kits include: a granola bar (“for when you feel hungry,”); tissues (“for the times when you may have to dry tears,”); and a candle (“to light your day when you’re feeling burned out,”).
