As coronavirus cases in the U.S. surpassed 11 million, with many states setting all-time records for highest number of cases, the strain and sacrifices on healthcare workers is also back on an upswing — so one company is looking to remind us just how important the frontline medical workers are by giving away a seven-day RV vacation to one healthcare hero.
El Monte RV is seeking nominations to give a much-needed getaway to a doctor, nurse, technician, medical researcher, pharmacist, or medical worker. To be eligible, they must be a medical professional currently licensed in the United States or a member of a branch of the profession (qualifying professions are listed here), and reside in the continental U.S., be 21 or older, and have a valid driver’s license.
The nomination period is now open and entries must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. PT on Dec. 13, 2020. The public can then vote on the entries and the one with the most votes will be called the winner on Dec. 14 and officially be announced on Dec. 16.
The nomination form requires a written story about the healthcare hero and a photo or video of the nominee.
“It’s important we continue to find ways to extend our gratitude and give back to the heroic people in healthcare in the midst of COVID-19, especially as the holiday season nears,” Gordon Hewston, Chief Operating Officer of Tourism Holdings Limited, the parent company of El Monte RV, which has 22 locations from coast to coast, said in a statement. “El Monte RV would like to pay tribute in the best way we know how: with a seven-day RV road trip to the most breathtaking outdoor sites the U.S. has to offer.”
Earlier this year, RV rental company Outdoorsy also gave away trips to healthcare workers, while American Airlines and Hyatt gave thousands of workers at hard-hit NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst in Queens, New York, vacations, and JetBlue and Qatar Airways each gave away 100,000 roundtrip flights to healthcare heroes.
