The Rotary Club of Green donates masks and hand sanitizer to the Summit County Sheriff’s office
The Rotary Club of Green donated a reusable, washable mask for each of the 350 Summit County Sheriff Deputies. In addition to that donation, the club purchased 250 personal bottles of hand sanitizer for the Deputies.
This project was the result of fundraising efforts the club has done throughout the year and due to a matching grant received from Rotary District 6630.
This donation came together through the coordination of businesses and entities switching operations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Rotary Club of Green worked with local business, Liquid located in Canton, Ohio, to make the customized SHERIFF masks. Liquid; normally a t-shirt and custom gift company; switched operations to mask making since the pandemic.
The hand sanitizer was produced by Rootstown Community Pharmacy at NEOMED in Portage County. Once the COVID pandemic hit, they started producing hand sanitizer and was happy to help the Rotary Club facilitate this purchase for the Deputies.
“Our Club was excited to provide these frontline heroes with something they can wear every day to help keep people safe during this unprecedented time,” Jeananne Chadsey said, Chadsey is President of the club.  Jeananne added that the Club is very proud to have added 6 new members since January!
The Summit County Sheriff's office wrote on Facebook:  This group of generous individuals heard we needed masks and sanitizer so they scrambled to provide both for our men and women in Patrol. Using monies from fundraising events and a grant from Rotary District 6630, the club worked with Liquid - a tee shirt maker in Canton, to produce 350 customized Sheriff masks. The club also arranged for Rootstown Community Pharmacy at NEOMED in Portage County to provide 250 bottles of sanitizer.
The Rotary Club of Green is committed to helping the Green community in any way possible during this challenging time. The Club was chartered in 2018 and continues to be a club of action with different efforts to further Rotary’s mission of “service above self.”
