Encino Energy provided Baskets of Hope to frontline workers in Carroll and Stark counties May 1, serving over 630 men and women supporting essential emergency, health and safety services to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Baskets were presented to the following Carroll County agencies: health department, emergency management, Friendship Center and Sheriff’s office.
Throughout the pandemic, Encino has continued to support communities throughout eastern and southeastern Ohio, with a focus on the message “Be Safe. Be Hopeful. Be Kind.” The Baskets of Hope outreach to local hospitals, fire departments and police will continue in other counties in Ohio and Texas. The effort is supported by financial gifts and time from employees with matching contributions from the company.
“It’s great to have good private partners showing support during this time of difficulties,” said Tom Cottis, director of the Carroll County Emergency Management Agency. “Thank you, Encino Energy!”
In Stark County, baskets were provided to the Sheriff’s office, Aultman and Mercy hospitals and the police and fire departments in Louisville. Those baskets were sourced with local snacks from In Light of the Future Catering and Events.
“Encino appreciates our frontline workers in emergency, health and safety always, and now more than ever,” said Jackie Stewart, director of External Affairs at Encino. “We’ve been very blessed to continue working during this pandemic and we thank Governor DeWine for understanding that energy is essential to human life. The protection of our environment and the health and safety of the communities in which we live and work is paramount to Encino’s core values and really is the heart of our Community Partnership Program. As we continue to navigate these waters as a state, country and world, we want to simply encourage everyone to continue to ‘Be Safe. Be Hopeful. Be Kind.’ We will get through this together.”
Stewart noted, in April Encino launched a campaign with the Jefferson County Chamber to highlight local, essential small businesses and provide information on local restaurants providing takeout, as well as, several public service announcements, all focused on positive messages of hope.
