Helping the Community in a Time of Covid by Cassie Chen

Through an interview with my mom, I realized that many parents were very concerned and worked very hard for the wellbeing of the community and to preserve what we consider to be normal. Parents actively provided input to schools as they took appropriate measures to keep students, teachers, school staff, and their families healthy. They also worked together to distribute masks and protective equipment to hospitals and local clinics that faced shortages during the pandemic, so they could keep their doors open to patients. Of course, we should be especially grateful to the frontline responders who have worked so hard and sacrificed so much to keep us and the whole community safe. They deserve our special thanks and appreciation.
