Uplifting Moments Around Plano During COVID-19

Updated: 05/21/2020

Over the past several weeks of the coronavirus epidemic in North Texas, we have seen a remarkable wave of support from our community for our community. The outpouring of love for Plano is uplifting all of our hearts during this difficult time.

From saluting our heroes on the front lines of this epidemic and providing food to those in need to community acts of kindness and inspiring sidewalk chalk messages, the Plano community is rising to the top to prove “we are in this together.”

We have compiled a series of Instagram posts showcasing all of the support seen around the city.

Health care workers at @texashealth Plano received smoothies and fruit bowls Tuesday morning from @kwenchjuicefrisco in Frisco, compliments of @feedthefrontlinedfw, a new nonprofit team of young professionals in the Dallas and Houston area that connects restaurants and hospitals for free breakfast and lunches. As of Tuesday, Feed the Front Line raised $385,357 to support local restaurants and their employees in DFW and Houston in the delivery of 17,174 meals to Texas health care workers, according to its website. “We wanted to do something to fight this virus besides staying home,” says 24-year-old Aidan Dewar of Dallas, a volunteer who has also recruited his younger sister Elena, 17. “This is our gesture to support the restaurant workers as well as the heroic efforts of hospital workers.” To donate, go to ftfltexas.org Photos courtesy of @feedthefrontlinedfw

When retired Texas Health Plano nurse, Judy Flores, BSN, RN, heard the ears of her former colleagues were suffering from wearing masks all day, she grabbed her sewing machine and jumped into action. Doctors and nurses @texashealth Plano are now sporting a new hospital fashion trend – mask headbands. The headbands alleviate rubbing and pressure behind the ears, providing a little relief. “Even though I’m not up there with them, this is my way of saying I’m there for them,” Judy says. “I couldn’t sit back and do nothing.” Modeling their headbands are Kari McCord, Laura Massey, Carol Bult, Toni Kendall, Julia Seeberger, Donna Doeringsfeld, Amanda Mendez, Michelle Garner and Angela Potter. #heartsforhealthcareworkers
