After launching #MAthanks on April 14, U.S. Reps. Katherine Clark and Kennedy on Friday released “A Massachusetts Thank You” – a virtual thank you card for health care providers and essential workers on the front lines of COVID-19.

“The Commonwealth has one message to essential workers: thank you,” said the lawmakers. “As demonstrated by this outpouring of gratitude, Massachusetts residents are beyond grateful for the help and care they’re receiving from frontline workers, from the grocery store employees to the transit workers to the nurses and doctors. These messages show that we will get through this together and that it’s our collective humanity that shines brightest in the most challenging moments.”

Lawmakers compiled the video using pictures and videos submitted online over the last 10 days. More than 250 thank-you messages were submitted from the public. The video will be distributed to health care centers, hospitals, nursing homes workers, food pantries, labor unions and other organizations that represent essential workers.
