Valentine bandit shows the love for Maine healthcare workers fighting the coronavirus

Two hospitals in Maine were hit by the Valentine bandit overnight, showing support for healthcare workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic.

PORTLAND, Maine — The Valentine bandit got out the big hearts last night to show the love towards Maine's healthcare workers who are fighting COVID-19

The symbols of support were discovered Monday morning hanging off of Maine Medical Center and Northern Light Mercy Hospital

The medical organizations expressed their gratitude to the bandit and to all the people who are working hard to fight COVID-19.

Northern Light Mercy Hospital said, "while showing the love for our team, we’d like to express our sincere gratitude for all health care workers and first responders in Maine and across the nation," while Maine Medical Center wrote, "thank you, V-Day Bandit, for making us smile! ❤️"
