Protecting the Heroes
Updated: Apr 27
Coretta Scott King once said, "The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”
If the past month has shown us one thing, it is that the Delta County community is exceptional. People from across the community have jumped into action helping our health heroes and each other through this pandemic.
During these unprecedented times, collective compassionate actions will help us get through this together. Everyone can perform at least one compassionate action that helps our community.
It takes compassion for you to stay home.
It takes compassion for you to wear a mask.
It takes compassion for you to help.
All of these actions, no matter how big or small, help our community fight this crisis. Compassionate acts are keeping Delta County unified, despite the physical distance.
If you're wondering what compassionate act you can take for others, than we're here for you. Below we've compiled a few ways for you to stay safe and support those who need it.
Wishing you all the best,
Kaitlyn Jones, Executive Director

With the help of many volunteers, hundreds of masks and gowns have been made for DCMH and other essential workers. But we are not out of the woods yet. There are still people performing essential duties that need masks. If you are able to sew, or are part of a business that's keeping us all going, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
ShadeScapes, a local Hotchkiss business, is helping to match volunteer sewing groups with Delta County businesses in need of face masks and donating fabric to get the job done.
So many businesses and individuals have already provided so much support - Thank you!
