Cortland recognizes local community
THOMAS — The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our daily lives here in West Virginia and around the world. Some folks have started theorizing about the new normal as West Virginia slowly begins the process of re-opening. There is one thing that has remained constant during the pandemic … a strong Mountaineer spirit.
“We have been blessed throughout this ordeal,” Cortland Administrator Beth Clevenger said. “Many local community members and businesses have donated hard-to-find supplies. We’ve received donations of bleach, hand sanitizer, and homemade face masks to boost our inventory. Just knowing that the community is thinking of us has made a world of difference.”
The Cortland family, which represents the nursing home, Rehab and Physical Therapy, Pineview and the Pines thanks everyone that has the family in their thoughts, prayers and deeds.
Generous support was provided by Preston Home Health, Davis Community Church, Dollar General, Kingsford Charcoal, Lowes, Nana’s Daycare, Office of Emergency Management, Shop N’ Save, Tucker County Health Department and WV Caring.
Individual support was provided by Phyllis Bager, Mary Bowley, Shirley Carr, Debra Huebner, Hugh and Sandy Kendall, Lois Nelson, Lisa Roth, Sue Reall, Donna Snyder, Donna Walker and Randy Whetzel for your thoughtful donations.
Cortland had countless offers for homemade cookies, treats and other delightful items. Unfortunately, with heightened infection controls in place for resident safety, officials could not allow anything in the building that wasn’t prepackaged or able to be disinfected to enter the facility.
“It’s times like these when you realize the importance of community,” said “Deep appreciation to everyone that has helped us along the way. I hate to think we’ve forgotten anyone, so please forgive us. All the well-wishes, calls, cards, letters, donations and more have made a difficult time more bearable.”
