Chapter Client Looking to Start a Movement, Help Those on the Front Lines

Daryl Toby, the owner of AguaFina Gardens in Sylvan Lake and a member of one of SCORE's CEO Roundtables in Southeast Michigan, was recently featured in a Detroit News article about the movement he has started to bring relief to workers on the front lines of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The article details Toby's efforts in "calling on other businesses to assess the protective gear they regularly use in their line of work and consider donating it to local hospitals that are in short supply during the coronavirus pandemic."

He said front-line health care workers are in desperate need of protective gear.

"And many of us have it in our storerooms," said Toby. "Right now, they need it more than we do."

Toby suggested companies assess what they have, take a photo and then post it to social media channels with the hashtag #supportcv19frontline and #protecthealthcarewokers. He said there are donations sites available where businesses can drop off what they have.
