CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS — Tuesday marked the end of "Nurse Appreciation Week" and H-E-B thanked local nurses for this year by giving dozens and dozens of flowers to nurses over at Christus Spohn South Hospital.

And it was a wonderful gesture to the nurses and others who are doing some important work for the community right now.

Monica Hunt, who is the director of nursing at Christus Spohn South, said, "We know that sometimes it can get tough but just being appreciated, it motivates us to do the right thing for the community."

Samantha Hoss, who is a nurse, said, "We love what we do and we love taking care of people and you know it's nice to be recognized for our efforts."

H-E-B delivered 80 floral arrangements to Spohn South and the company has delivered some 4, 000 arrangements statewide.
