Home Town Heroes 2020, Wall of Warriors
Written by Dan Fischer on June 1, 2020
The St. Jerome Guild, Inc., is announcing a new initiative to honor the COVID-19 healthcare workers of the Rochester Regional Health/UMMC and the Jerome Center in Batavia, NY. The Guild’s mission is to continually support our local hospital, and especially, now, during these extraordinary times.
As a special tribute to all 1000 UMMC employees during this pandemic, who are serving on the front lines as well as all supporting personnel, the Guild would like to honor each employee with a gold embroidered star.
The Genesee Livingston Orleans Wyoming (GLOW) community is welcome to support in this initiative by donating $10 per star representing an employee who may be a family member or friend, or just as a thank you for health-care providers’ tireless dedication and courage, taking outstanding care of all patients who are suffering through these unsettling and disconcerting times. There is no limit to donors wishing to honor more than one employee! The star donations will be accepted by check made payable to: St. Jerome Guild with notation ‘star’ mailed to St. Jerome Gift Shop at 16 Bank Street, Batavia, NY 14020.
The final project will incorporate all the stars to be embedded into frames that will be on display at the North Street and the Bank Street Campuses entitled, UMMC “Home Town Heroes – Wall of Warriors 2020.”
All proceeds from this initiative will be donated to UMMC to purchase vital equipment needed.
