Dear Country Day Families,
As we continue to deal with the challenge of COVID-19, I take hope and heart reading the innumerable stories of people stepping up to help in ways both big and small. One such story involves two CCDS parents who have started a grass-roots effort to help amass needed supplies for our hospitals.
Today, I have been in contact with Dr. Nervane Domloj and Dr. Aparna Shah who reached out to tap into our community's caring nature to help gather desperately needed safety supplies. As they explained, the need is far outpacing supply, and health care workers and first responders, who are on the front lines fighting the outbreak, are putting themselves at great risk for our benefit.
To help, we are asking Country Day families involved in businesses that have access to necessary supplies (construction companies, dental and veterinary practices, salons, and the like) to consider donating any N95 masks, surgical masks, disposable gloves/gowns, safety goggles, etc. they can spare. This request also applies to any individuals who ordered these types of supplies and have extra. Visit the Hamilton County Emergency Management (HCEM) for a list of supplies needed.
Or, you may take them directly to:
615 Elsinore Place
Cincinnati, OH 45202
Donations are accepted Mon-Fri, 10 am to 2 pm.
You may also contact Doug Witsken at HCEM (513-263-8013) with any questions about drop-offs.
