Boon Edam Ireland Steps in to Help the Community During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Edam, the Netherlands, April 2020 – Our colleagues at Boon Edam Ireland have made us proud by their recent acts of kindness and excellent teamwork during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Community Call Food Parcels
Organised by various Irish town councils and in conjunction with local sports clubs – Community Call is a voluntary project that delivers vital food packages to the most vulnerable and the elderly within various communities. Once a week they receive a list of people and addresses and collect the parcels from the local Community Call office. They then deliver the package to the door, ring the bell and step back. Our team stays for a quick chat from a distance to make sure each person is doing alright and that no further help or support is required.
Declan Hurrell, Service Manager from Boon Edam Ireland, says, “The CEO of South Dublin County Council has asked me to pass on his gratitude for the great effort that our group has displayed. Everyone pulling together in the Community is making a huge difference to those in need. Behind every door, there’s a story that most people won’t know, and your efforts are taking one more worry away from these families.”
A Helping Hand at St. Columcilles Hospital - Dublin
Some quick-thinking and action went a long way at a recent call-out in Ireland. One of the entrance doors to a main ward at St. Columcilles Hospital was not working correctly. The critical entrance was in operation from 8 am – 8 pm daily and needed an urgent on-site repair. The team worked together to ensure a fast and well-executed repair was completed in excellent time.
The General Manager of the Hospital commented “I would like to express my thanks to all Boon Edam staff who were on-site at SCH. They went above and beyond to ensure that the doors were repaired The unit where they were working is being used as an isolation unit for query/suspect COVID patientsThey are to be commended for their dedication and professionalism in their roles. They ensured that our staff could continue with their work in frontline healthcare provision at all times.”
John le Gear, Managing Director of Boon Edam Ireland, said, “We are all in this together, and we all have to look out for our colleagues and everyone in society. It is not just about ourselves, we have to have a sense of duty to others in society and as Boon Edam Ireland we have to play our part to beat this virus and anyway we can help we will.”
