Our seasoned and experienced Board cares about the personal well-being of our staff. Recently, led by Gwen Hahn, the Board made personal contributions to ensure that each employee received a mask to use during this COVID-19 crisis; these colorful masks were custom made by the daughter of one of our donors, and were delivered to each employee’s home with a heartfelt thank you note from the Board.
Further, Kevin Brown, Joe LaValla, Jeanne Leduc and John Longo used their professional networks to research and secure both disposable and re-usable masks for use at Easterseals’ work sites—and they also explored and delivered donations of masks. The Board’s efforts are greatly appreciated by the staff as PPE procurement is essential to the re-opening of our services.
