As we all contemplate the uncertain future created by the coronavirus crisis, it’s essential to remember that there are countless things we can do to help our front-line workers here and now.
In response to the pandemic, Greg Englesbe Real Estate Consulting contributed to a donation of 2,000 face masks to the New York City Police Foundation.
When we discuss the front lines of this crisis, we cannot forget the brave men and women who protect our communities.
More than 4,000 members of the NYPD already have tested positive for COVID-19. At least 29 have lost their lives.
Global shortages of personal protective equipment have left essential workers vulnerable across the United States. While most high-grade PPE understandably is prioritized for hospital workers, those who serve our communities in law enforcement are in need of support.
Police officers are out in the community every day to ensure public safety, protect those in need and solve crime even as we live in a state of heightened risk.
Masks are a critical resource for these men and women. If they are able to gain any peace of mind from this protection, we are all safer as a result.
Many Americans are feeling afraid and unsure of what they can do to safely give back during this time. No gesture is too small to make a difference. Even a show of appreciation can go a long way toward making those who sacrifice the most feel valued by those they serve.
Crisis often gives us the opportunity to reflect on what we can do to become a stronger, more connected and united society.
Amid all of the pain, loss and tragedy of the COVID-19 crisis, I urge everyone to consider the resources they have at their disposal, even if it’s moral support. You may be able to help save a life, brighten a day and foster the collective recovery that will return us to the life we once enjoyed.
