As we look back on 2020, trying to find the positive, Western Reserve Masonic Community along with the generous help of The Ohio Masonic Home has reached out to the community in a variety of ways what we like to call Small Acts of Kindness such as donating supplies to The Children’s Center of Medina County as well as donating personal protective equipment (PPE) to the Medina Twp. Police Department. We also worked with helping Medina County for Older Adults by donating gifts to be added in their meals on wheels holiday bags. WRMC didn’t forget the veterans either by donating 20 cases of shampoo to the Medina County Veterans Office for their 10th Annual Tank the Truck which will go to veterans living in Medina County.
Western Reserve Masonic Community has dedicated community members that have given themselves a name, “WRMC Yarn Buddies.” This group made scarves, lap blankets and afghans which were all made entirely with donated yarn. These donations have allowed them to continue to be a part of the Warm Up Medina County program for the past six years and they plan to continue being a part of this wonderful program for years to come.
WRMC continues to show small acts of kindness to their employees too. The dining team keeps the refrigerators stocked with sandwiches/wraps for employees to grab with no charge. All of these “small acts of kindness” are just what everyone needs to make people feel better, and in turn making us feel better also. It may have been that smile that we can only see in their eyes above the mask knowing that what is small to one person may be a grand gesture to the next person. WRMC is looking forward to what 2021 has to bring with hopes that we can all get back to normal.
