At the August 18, 2020 City Council meeting, Mayor Zimmerman proclaimed August 24-28, 2020 “Healthcare Heroes Week" in Sugar Land. The overall goal of Healthcare Heroes week in Sugar Land is to inspire the community to show local healthcare heroes that their work is seen and appreciated and that their daily sacrifices have not been forgotten. Healthcare Heroes Week was rescheduled to September 21-25 due to anticipated impacts of Hurricane Laura.
The week is envisioned to be a time of community celebration, with several activities organized by the City of Sugar Land (see below). The occasion is also intended to serve as a catalyst for the community to initiate their own healthcare worker recognition activities, even beyond Healthcare Heroes Week.
As a small sign of our overwhelming gratitude, join us in displaying a blue heart on your front door or window to let our healthcare heroes know how much we appreciate them. Take a photo of your creations and share the picture with us on social media #SLheroes. Photos can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.*
