A sweet way to start St. Patrick's Day for Essentia Health-St. Mary's Medical Center. Monarch Healthcare and Moments Hospice teamed up to deliver coffee and other caffeine and pastries to staff on Wednesday morning.

"It feels wonderful to be out here, to say thank you to health care workers. We've seen a lot of smiles coming through. It was a lot of fun, and a lot of happiness. A good way to start the day," shared Denise Lagraves, from Monarch.

"We are here to to show appreciation to all our health care workers, who are heroes," added Brett Otto, from Moments Hospice.

Businesses also donated, like Kwik Trip and Starbucks.

They also brought back more treats in the afternoon. They were on the Range on Tuesday, and plan on being in Cloquet on Thursday.
