Volunteers Provide Personal Protective Equipment for Students

White’s Residential and Family Services, is grateful to local volunteers from around the community for providing our residential students and staff with face masks.  The volunteers’ combined efforts provided hundreds of masks to the residential campus, allowing White’s to continue taking proactive measures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

White’s priority is the health and well being of the students and staff. The agency’s senior leadership team meets daily to determine any changes needed to safeguard campus and continue to provide essential services to clients.  Last week, White’s proactively connected with several women’s groups locally to help plan for the need of face masks on campus. The agency continues to implement best practices established by the CDC, DCS, and the local health department.

 “We are in unprecedented times. This pandemic is challenging us daily to discern the Lord’s will and make the best decisions we can with the information we have available. We are so thankful for the community support and our local volunteers that provided these resources to help care for the students and staff on campus,” stated Ron Evans, White’s Chief Executive Officer.

For over 170 years, White’s Residential and Family Services has provided hope and transformation through Christ to children and families in crisis through foster care, residential treatment, and community-based services.  With support from staff and the community, White’s will continue its mission during these challenging times.
