Community Foundation of Collier County thanks COVID-19 superheroes
To show its appreciation of efforts by the staff of Collier County Public Schools and NCH Healthcare System during the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the Community Foundation of Collier County (CFCC) is posting thank you signs at 60 local elementary, middle and high schools, adult and workforce technical schools, alternative schools, the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Administrative Center, and NCH Baker Hospital and NCH North Naples Hospital. Community Foundation staff and their families spread out across Collier County last weekend from Immokalee to Everglades City to place signs to thank teachers, administrators, doctors, nurses, frontline workers, and support staff from office personnel and cafeteria workers to custodians and bus drivers. CFCC thanks these superheroes for their dedication to helping students continue their education both virtually and in-person and the selflessness, professionalism and commitment of the NCH staff to combating the virus.
