In 2020 we had to learn how to utilize technology. We switched from seeing our friends,
family, and co-workers daily to seeing them on a screen. We started protecting ourselves
and others by wearing a face mask, social distancing, and thinking about new ways
to interact with others. We are still practicing safety measures to ensure our safety.
There are ways you can still be creative and give back in the new year.
AEHC has a reputation for always providing needs to the state of Arkansas. We saw
the huge impact this organization had in March. In 2020, AEHC donated and made over
60,000 face masks. These were delivered to local emergency services, postal workers,
medical field workers, the high-risk population, kids returning to school, and so
many more. AEHC also filled up food banks and food pantries across the state. The
need for food increased when residents found themselves without a job. AEHC never
stopped giving. Even during the holiday season, over 300 blankets were provided to
UAMS. AEHC did another food drive, “16 Days of Giving,” where members filled boxes
with food and delivered them to food banks and food pantries close to them.
You may be thinking:
“I am tired, but I don’t want to stop giving back.”
“What else can we do?”
“Who needs us, and how can we help?”
I have answers.
After working with Arkansas Children’s Hospital and UAMS, the need for masks is still
high. Patients are always required to wear a mask in both hospitals. ACH requested
only masks be made/bought and donated at this time. Patients and parents need them
while in the hospital.
Both hospitals wanted to pass along a huge “THANK YOU!” to AEHC members who have donated
items in 2020. The work has not gone unnoticed.
You will find patterns for adults and children in the links below.
Contact Rachael Price at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Donations can be sent to the Little Rock State office at 2301
South University Ave, Little Rock AR 72204, and Rachael will make sure they get to
ACH and UAMS.
