Clark-Lindsey - healthcare worker appreciation and resident engagement

We have 300 employees working around the clock to take care of and protect our ~300 vulnerable older adult residents during this scary time. While our residents receive a decent amount of attention from family and friends, our staff could really use some extra love! We'd love to be able to show them how much their work matters, and how the community support them. If you and/or your kids are bored at home, we'd love cards, letters, signs, little treats, etc. to provide encouragement and show how much the community appreciates their sacrifices!
