Local groups team up to show appreciation for frontline workers

Allumine Health has teamed up with the Rotary Club of College Station and Senior Placement Advisors of Texas to create “the yard sign campaign.”

BRYAN, Texas — Healthcare workers are a crucial part to battling this pandemic and lowering the number of coronavirus casualties. Many in the community have gathered together during this time to show support for their healthcare workers. 

Allumine Health has teamed up with the Rotary Club of College Station and Senior Placement Advisors of Texas to create “the yard sign campaign.” Every dollar donated goes toward feeding frontline workers of this pandemic.

“These guys are doing so much for our community and putting themselves in danger and risk everyday just doing their job. It’s extra important during this time to make sure they’re getting support and make sure they’re supported by everyone in the community," said Allumine Health administrator Dana Rowse. 

Their first stop of this week was delivering 300 meals to the nurses at Baylor Scott and White hospital. A key part of this campaign is also to build support among the local restaurants in Bryan-College Station.

“We want this to stay local. We want this to come from local to serve the local community, especially during these difficult times having a unified local kind of partnership is really important for us and i know it’s important for all the people that are providing the care," said Rowse.

Anyone can participate in this campaign by buying a yard sign.

“We created the idea of selling these yard signs to raise money for Allumine Health Foundation to feed the local frontline providers as well as using our local restaurants. We’re covering both aspects and this will allow us support the community by the community coming out and purchasing these signs," said Senior Placement Advisors of Texas owner Wade Budney. 

Each sign is twenty dollars, and you can donate more if you wish. 

The campaign team will be visiting CHI St. Joseph next, along with other nursing home facilities. This campaign will have delivered nearly 800 meals by the end of this week, and will continue serving the community for another three weeks.
