WESTFORD — Bamboo Restaurant, located in Primrose Park on Route 110 in Westford, will donate 20% of all takeout and dine-in revenue on Tuesday, April 27, to a local realty company’s effort to thank nurses at Lowell General Hospital.

The restaurant is open 11:30 a.m. to 9:45 p.m.

Keller Williams Merrimack Valley of Westford is hoping to collect $8,700 to thank each nurse at LGH — and there are about 1,700 of them — with a gift card to Dunkin’.

“It’s a very small token, but we really wanted to do something for these nurses, especially with National Nurses Week coming up May 6-12,” said Robin Flynn, an agent at the Westford office.

Keller Williams is also located in Primrose Park, and its neighbors at Bamboo offered to help on Tuesday, April 27, in the effort to raise the money needed.

The effort to thank LGH nurses is part of Keller Williams’ annual day of charitable giving, called Red Day.

Flynn is leading the effort idea for the Westford office to thank the nurses at Lowell General.

“These nurses have been working so hard, especially during the pandemic, so I said, ‘Let’s do something for nurses to thank them,’” Flynn said. “The fact that Bamboo is willing to do this for us is great.”

The Keller Williams Merrimack Valley team hopes to present the nurses with the gift cards on Red Day, May 13.
