Encourage Our Frontline Workers
Share some encouraging words with frontline workers who are working especially hard to care for and protect our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We hope to compile stacks of notes, cards, and drawings that can be delivered to staff teams at hospitals, long term care homes, senior’s residences, and first responder stations. These cards will be delivered alongside snacks and drinks to let these heroes know that they are appreciated and in our prayers. This is a great opportunity for families to work together to encourage our community and to remember the people who are working hard to keep us all safe.
HELP US REACH OUR GOAL
700 cards delivered to staff teams at hospitals, long term care homes, senior’s residences, and first responder stations.
3 Easy Steps…
1. WRITE A NOTE
Cards and notes should use general greetings and be inclusive to everyone. You do not need to write anything long – just a quick note of encouragement.
Here’s an example:
Thank you so much for all that you are doing to care for and keep our community safe during this time! We see how hard you are working. We are standing with you and we are grateful for all that you are doing!
Stay well, stay strong, and stay safe – we are praying for you, those you serve, and our Markham community during this time!
If using premade cards, be sure to choose ones with general sayings such as “Thinking of you”, “Hello”, or “Thank you”.
It is fine to mention that our community is praying for their staff and even include encouraging Bible references or quotes but we want to ensure our words are inclusive to all backgrounds. Remember: our goal is simply to be encouraging and to let them know we are thankful for the work that they are doing.
Get our kids involved! They can write thank you notes, draw pictures, or even help decorate around their parent’s writing.
2. DROP OFF YOUR NOTE
We have placed a bin by the main doors at Cornerstone Centre (below the youth lounge). Please drop the cards in that bin – we will be periodically picking them up and delivering them to the workplaces of frontline workers.
If you are unable to drop them off, please let us know and we can help arrange an alternative pick up.
3. KEEP US UPDATED
Let us know how many cards you dropped off in the bin so we can update our tally. Email Bethany.
