POSITIVE NEWS: Wilmington Nurse Thanks Residents For Countless Acts Of Kindness

WILMINGTON, MA — A Wilmington nurse wants to thank the community for their support during these trying times.

“I couldn’t be more grateful for the wonderful people in Wilmington,” says Lisette Packer, a nurse at Massachusetts General Hospital. “I have never felt so proud and yet so scared to do the work I do. This wonderful community has certainly shown me love and has helped me during this crisis.”

Packer outlines several of the acts of kindness she has received from her fellow Wilmington residents:

  • Countless calls and texts from Wilmington residents checking in
  • Notes sent thanking her for being a nurse on the front lines
  • Masks delivered for herself and her co-workers
  • Dinners dropped off
  • A dozen of bagels from Bagel World left on her doorstep

“Last week, I had three amazing full dinners dropped off. I have four teenage sons, so the fact that after working these stressful shifts I didn’t have to cook was a true gift,” Packer adds.

She thanks all the Wilmington residents who have reached out to her — some close friends she speaks with daily and others she hasn’t spoken to in years.

“Last week was the worst work week I have ever experienced, but Wilmington has helped me and continues to help me through this all,” says Packer.
