Greene Foreman Creates Masks for Staff
April 13, 2020 12:00 AM
History shows that in times of crisis people share many acts of kindness. During these unprecedented times, we don't have to look any further than our own backyard to witness some of these selfless acts. Many employees at SCI Greene have been recipients of such kindness.
When the DOC mandated staff to wear protective face masks, they were found to be a bit ordinary. Corrections Employment Vocational Coordinator Michele Baker quickly stepped up to assist. She purchased some basic materials and delivered the items to the home of Corrections Garment Factory Foreman Trish Ray who, without hesitation, quickly began darning an abundance of comfortable masks for the employees. The brightly-colored masks adorn the faces of many employees daily and helps bring a sense of calm during this time. The masks were provided free of charge, and any donations offered were used to offset the cost of the materials. To date, Ray has made more than 200 masks for SCI Green employees. She also has made several masks for her community.
We all should all be grateful for each other and remember to thank the people who perform such random acts of kindness for others.
