Paying it forward and offering your support can be shown with endless approaches, all unique and caring in their own way.
The last few months have been difficult for many across the globe, challenging in ways many of us have yet to experience, and significantly more trying for some professions. A lot of unprecedented disruptions in our daily lives took place, forcing us to adapt as well as we possibly could, with little to no experience or time to prepare. We have all been faced with uncertainty and questions. It is not over yet, and no one knows what the future holds, but what we do know is that we are stronger together.
We at Jedwards International, Inc. value the importance of community, coming together and staying together in hard times. By supporting our local communities, we strive to build a stronger foundation for our people and our nation.
As sickness climbed across the country, hospitals have been faced with stress, chaos, hysteria, along with outpouring love and support. Hospitals have been faced with extremely high capacity, and there was a severe drop in supplies. Without the supplies they need, their job becomes harder and less safe—not only for them, but for everyone they come into contact with.
When you have the means to help someone, it’s hard to sit by and do nothing. To show our appreciation and to offer aid in any way possible, we reached out to our local frontline workers fighting COVID-19. We are beyond thankful we had the means to donate KN95 and 3M masks to several local Massachusetts facilities:
- Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton
- Copley at Stoughton, a nursing and rehabilitation center
- Brockton Hospital
- Brewster Ambulance Dept
- Braintree Fire & Police Department
Remember that paying it forward and showing your support comes in many forms outside of large-scale motions. Thank your grocery workers. Check in on someone who might not have anyone around. Tip your delivery driver a little extra if you can. Order a gift certificate from a struggling business. Donate to or volunteer with your local food bank. Continue to stay safe and value not only your health, but the health of everyone around you.
By paying it forward with good deeds, we hope to inspire a continuous cycle of positive interactions and no-strings-attached kindness.
