(BEDFORD) – Organizers will have a “Stuff A SUV” event to help support the staff of Mitchell Manor Nursing Home.
Members of the community are encouraged to bring the following items: pop, snacks, sugar-free items, and packaged cookies. Anything that is motivating and positive.
This project will begin at 8:00 a.m. and run until 4:00 p.m. on Friday, April 17th.
The items must be packaged and store-bought so they can be sanitized on delivery before they can be brought into the building.
The Director of Nursing has already been contacted and is aware of the project.
An SUV will be parked at 1919 Stevens Lane, which is the Lawrence County Soil and Conservation lot, located behind Lowes in Bedford.
This community project was organized by Mandy Robbins and Denise Barnett of Bedford.
“My daughter has worked in long-term nursing facilities previously and knows the stress that every staff member goes through each day. Let alone when dealing with a situation like the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to show them all the support we can give them. There are approximately 40-50 employees at the Mitchell Manor facility,” said Barnett.
“Many other businesses and individuals have also donated to Mitchell Manor during the week and we want to make sure we continue to show our love and support to these employees,” Barnett continued.
If there is a good response to the project, items will be delivered to other nursing facilities in Lawrence County.
Remember to practice social distancing during the collection of these items. Wearing of masks is encouraged at the drop-off point.
