Junior League Announces #JLGThankourheroes Social Media Campaign

The Junior League of Greenwich is excited to announce “#JLGThankourheroes,” a new social media campaign in recognition of National EMS week.

The Junior League of Greenwich is inviting everyone in the community to create  thank you cards, heart-felt video messages, drawings  or simple posts of thanks and use the tag #JLGThankourheroes.

The gratitude  display is not just limited to EMS, the Junior League of Greenwich wants to know who your hero has been in the Town of Greenwich over the past couple months.  It could be an individual person or a group working in a support field.

These cards, art work, and messages should be posted to one’s individual Facebook page starting Monday May 18 through Saturday May 23  with the hashtag #JLGThankourheroes so that a virtual collection of all the cards and photos on Facebook can be seen as a united expression of appreciation from the community of Greenwich.

The purpose of this campaign is to celebrate the bravery and ongoing dedication of our Greenwich heroes during the COVID-19 pandemic weeks.

“We are so grateful for all those heroes working to make our community safe and secure.  We can never express enough gratitude for all they are doing.  We hope many will join us to say lots of “virtual” thanks,” said Hilary Watson, Junior League of Greenwich President.

The Junior League of Greenwich encourages residents to recognize as many of their everyday heroes as they can, from doctors, nurses, and teachers, to delivery drivers, and grocery and drug store staff. There have been so many unsung heroes who continue to work each day to  support the community of Greenwich by providing essential food, medicine, and services to our citizens during this time.
