During these difficult times, we are all in need of a little inspiration. There’s a lot of it to be found in our brave essential services workers and our healthcare heroes. Our team has also been greatly inspired by seeing the amazing initiatives sprouting in our community. From neighborhood groups that help deliver groceries and supplies to the vulnerable, to individuals working away in their homes to sew masks for workers, there is no shortage of uplifting efforts in the fight against COVID-19.
We’re very fortunate to have recently begun collaborating with one of these inspiring initiatives — Pharm Against COVID-19. This student-led organization is committed to helping pharmacies that are struggling to obtain the PPE they need, as they continue supporting their local communities. Their organization works with local businesses and organizations willing to donate supplies that are in high demand, including medical masks, gloves, and sanitizers.
Pharmacists are essential in the fight against COVID-19, and can greatly relieve the burden that hospitals and the health care system are experiencing during this time. Through their #PharmacistsontheFrontLine campaign, Pharm Against COVID-19 has been educating the public and raising awareness for the great work that pharmacists in the province are doing amidst this global pandemic.
We are very very grateful to be partnering with them. They have generously provided us with assistance for our deliveries, and we are excited to be working together to reach as many health care workers as possible!
Our team has many more deliveries to go, and we are grateful to have the support of other community organizations who are also committed to providing PPE to health care workers during this time. Though we are all practicing distancing, we are also now more connected than ever — connected in our fight against COVID-19.
We are always looking to expand our effort and in need of support in many forms: volunteers, donations, and spreading the word about our initiative. We are very grateful for the support we’ve received thus far from the community, and are more determined than ever to help our brave health care heroes with your support.
