Ideas sought to show community support during pandemic

In this time of crisis it is more important than ever that we, as a community, pull together in order to support each other and those that go to work every day to provide essential services.

These folks include doctors, nurses, first responders, those that work in grocery, drug, and other essential retailers, mail delivery personnel, and everybody else that is still going to work to provide services. They are putting themselves at risk in order for our lives to continue as “normally” as possible.

Genesee County had a “Corona Convoy” in which more than $4,000 was raised for Crossroads House. I happened to be driving through there and every street corner and country road intersection had people showing support – all while following social distancing guidelines.

I am soliciting ideas as to what we can do here in our community to pull together, support one another, and show our gratitude for the efforts of those mentioned above. Be it online, safely out in the open air, or whatever platform comes to mind.

I can be reached at OrleansBridge@gmail.com or The Orleans Bridge on Facebook.

Thank you.
