Amid a medical crisis, some good things are happening across Northwest Georgia. You’ve seen stories about people making masks in their downtime — including students. Area hospitals also are posting pictures of donated meals from area restaurants and meal providers (carry-out places). Below is a note about what the Floyd County College and Career Academy is doing to help.
One note: the accompanying photos were all taken before the social distancing mandate.
This update from Floyd Medical Center in response to key protection equpment supplies:
“Wow! Our hearts are full.
“We are grateful for our supply chain team members. Thanks to their creativity and ingenuity, our access to government stockpiles and our work to conserve, we have the masks, face shields and other supplies we need to protect our employees and our patients.
“To the mask makers in our community, home sewers and needle artists who have used their time and talents to support us, we appreciate you. We encourage donations of homemade masks to other hospitals who may need them. For those wanting to help Floyd specifically, please consider making a donation to Floyd Healthcare Foundation’s COVID-19 Essentials Fund to help cover the costs of supplies and equipment. Your concern for health care workers everywhere wows us and fills our hearts with gratitude. ”
