They have provided high quality and safe care to our patients during this unprecedented time and with positivity and resiliency.”
Maria Burke ‘20 “We’re holding strong at United Way. We are still accepting donations for the Covid-19 Relief fund. Donations can be made at https://www.unitedwaymedina.org/covid19relief. United Way is currently funding The Salvation Armies in Medina and Wadsworth, Community Cooperative Solutions in Lodi, and Matthew 25.”
Kathy Warner ‘14 “We (Jobs for Ohio Graduates) have transitioned to a remote workplace and are still engaging with our students and with each other. The camaraderie and support my coworkers have displayed is absolutely phenomenal. I am grateful to have become part of this caring community. This will only make our organization better!”
Randy Bennett ’13, Bill Bennet ’14, Susan Whittaker ’15, and Michelle Wedlake ’20 “In a response to a public safety need during this pandemic, Cuyahoga community College (Tri-C) reached out to ATD as a trusted industry partner to provide an innovative, economic option to address the PPE shortage. The Can-Do People at ATD did just that and will keep making them as long as they are needed.” Check out the new ATD Face Shield here.
