With the uncertainty that has surrounded us recently, some amazing small business owners have stepped up to help our community in whatever way they can. We want to recognize their efforts!
Today’s Hero – Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta
Today we shine the spotlight on Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, which has a location on Big Shanty Road in the Town Center CID. It’s no question that our healthcare professionals are on the front lines of the epidemic at hand and the professionals at Children’s are no exception.
Pam Younker, Children’s Community Development Officer, adds, “You won’t hear much about our unsung heroes, because they don’t look for accolades, they just do their jobs as the true givers they are.” This statement only reinforces how deserving they are of praise.
The Hillgrove High School Lacrosse team put their appreciation in action by donating the snacks and drinks from their concession stand to the Children’s Urgent Care facility on Big Shanty Road. Their season ended early leaving them with snacks that would’ve gone uneaten this year but they found a deserving recipient in the staff at Children’s.
Thank you to the hardworking medical professionals at Children’s who have and continue to go above and beyond to care for our children! Are you wondering how you can support the frontline workers and staff at Children’s? They’ve created a convenient list of ways that you can help on their website for you to choose from. It can be as easy as just staying home to protect others or sending a virtual smile to staff and patients!
