Tidelands Health encouraging community members to participate in “Thank you to the helpers” effort
A simple thank you can mean so much.
Tidelands Health is launching a “Thank you to the helpers” effort to help community members easily express their appreciation to those professionals – everyone from grocery store workers and truck drivers to first responders and health care workers -- making sacrifices to support the COVID-19 coronavirus fight.
Community members can download and print a “Thank you to the helpers” sign from tidelandshealth.org
to display in the windows of their homes, businesses or vehicles to encourage all of those working for the community during this unprecedented time.
The words “Thank you to the helpers” are inspired by a quote from beloved television personality Mister Rogers, who famously said, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ ”
Find the printable sign and more COVID-19 information and resources at tidelandshealth.org.
Community members are also encouraged to snap a photo of their sign on display and share it on social media with the #helpers hashtag. Be sure to tag @tidelandshealth on Facebook and Twitter.
“Let’s show our appreciation to first responders, farmers, mail carriers, grocery store employees, pharmacists, factory workers, health care workers, delivery drivers, civil service employees, journalists – anyone working to keep us safe, healthy, informed and as close to our normal lives as possible during these challenging times,” said Bruce Bailey, Tidelands Health president and CEO. “So many dedicated individuals are going above and beyond for our community. Displaying these signs will help them know we support all they are doing. We are all in this together.”
