The Prescott “Finding and Making Good Program” is run by a group of local volunteers. They actively seek out people and organizations doing selfless acts in the Community.
PCA and Finding the Good Team
The group is a also a part of the El Gato Community Gives Program. Their mission is “celebrating people doing, living and creating positivity without expecting anything in return.”
GYCC received the award for their COVID Response Action Plan-Emergency Box Program.
Because of the Pandemic, GYCC was receiving urgent daily requests from Covid Positive Community Members with moderate symptoms. Local Hospitals were full and as a result, they were being asked to Isolate/Quarantine at home
GYCC committed to keeping as many COVID-positive people out of the hospitals as possible. COVID support boxes contain 14 days of supplies and are focused on helping COVID-positive people manage and monitor their symptoms at home. Supplies focus on oxygen and temperature monitors.
In addition, they include PPE for everyone in the household; disinfecting/sanitizing products; hydration and electrolyte support and shelf-stable food items.
GYCC distributed 38 boxes with the help of other local agencies such as Big Brother Big Sister, AARP and the Prescott Odd Fellows. The cost of 10 boxes is approximately $800. GYCC wants to give a big thanks to everyone in the Community who donated supplies and funding!
