The work of our health care workers and first responders during this crisis has been nothing short of heroic. They are working around the clock everyday to keep us safe and save lives – so we wanted to do everything possible to give back and make sure they have the support they need.
That’s why my office launched FrontlineMA.org, in collaboration with HubSpot and IDEO. FrontlineMA.org serves as a digital hub for our frontline workers to provide critical resources on personal protective equipment (PPE), prioritized testing, safe housing, meals, self-care and emergency child care, and more.
It also features a “Hero Wall” that includes messages of support from the public and serves as an outlet for frontline workers to share their experiences, from how they stay motivated to what the hardest part of this crisis has been for them.
Most importantly, FrontlineMA.org provides information for how we can all do our part to help frontline workers. Whether it’s donating PPE, providing a meal, offering housing, or simply sending a message of thanks.
I hope you will check out FrontlineMA.org today, and please share it with your friends and family and on social media so everyone can stay in the know.
If you are a frontline worker – thank you. If you are supporting a frontline worker – thank you. We must all do what we can to take care of one another throughout this crisis.
Please remember to continue to practice social distancing, wear a mask, wash your hands, and be safe.
Thank you for all you do,
