Hello ROCK friends and family!
Welcome to May. We’ve survived a whole month+ of lockdown, fighting COVID and all the stressors that come with it. Thank goodness for spring, and all the beauty it brings with it. As we try to continually be thankful and grateful, we remember how blessed we are that we are still able to go out twice a week and supply food, needs, and hope to our friends.
The purpose of my blog post today is to bring to everyone’s attention some further needs we have. We have had a handful of RN’s/RPN’s join our team (and we are so very happy and thankful for them) which means we are able to provide some first aid/medical assistance to our friends, right where they are. This has increased our needs for medical supplies.
We are asking if anyone has any contacts to get the following items in bulk, or can donate any of the following, to please reach out to us.
4x4 gauze Medical tape Sterile strips Saline Saline syringes
Triple antibiotic polysporin
Flamazine or OTC burn gel
Sunscreen Chap stick Small containers of Vaseline Tylenol
Scissors Marker Small flashlight
Let me tell you how excited we are that our team keeps growing and growing with people from all walks of life that can help us support our friends. Nurses, social workers, business owners, people of faith, young adults, and the list goes on. Word has spread about ROCK, and we want it to keep spreading. Please, friends, share our vision with those around you. Keep handy our website address (www.rockmissions.com), our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/reachoutck), our email address (email@example.com), and please feel free to invite others to contact us. The more people we have on board (especially when the restrictions are all lifted) the more people we can help. What an exciting time to come aboard.
As always, we share out thanks and gratitude to those of you who keep us going. The support and generous nature of our community is unbelievable. Every week we have a meeting where someone says “guess what was donated to us this week” – and we are stunned. We have amazing business owners who give their time, and product. We have anonymous donors who send cheques. We have parents, who along with their kids, offer to volunteer on their off time. And that’s just mentioning a few examples – I could make you a list of helpers that would fill a page. We could not do what we do without all of you. Bless you all!
Stay safe, and healthy everyone.
