LTE: Act of Kindness

Letter to the Editor

Thank you Allyson and Jim Richards, and Janice and Tarik Ayasun for your humanitarian efforts to help fight Covid 19 and protect the health of thousands of people in our community!

 Because of your generosity, 10,000 masks were donated to health care professionals, several hundred masks were donated to local grocery stores, and 20,000 masks were given to people as they drove through Veteran’s Community Park this past Saturday.  

The drive through at Veteran’s Community Park was extremely well organized thanks to Allyson Richards, Emergency Management Director Chris Bryne, Parks and Recreation Manager, Samantha Malloy, the Marco Island Fire Rescue and Police Departments, and volunteers from Al’s Pals and Marco island Area Chamber of Commerce.  

This generosity and the volunteer efforts of many, is the ultimate act of kindness.  Through kindness, exercising good common sense, and following CDC guidelines, we can all get through this pandemic together.  

With sincere appreciation,

Linda Turner and Jerry Swiacki
