The Partnership for Children of Johnston County (PFCJC) has continued to serve the community throughout the pandemic. In order to safely continue work, PFCJC was in need of face masks. A quick call from Executive Director, Dwight Morris to the Triangle East Chamber of Commerce led to a connection with Lowes Home Improvement in Smithfield.
Mike Mancuso, President & CEO of Triangle East Chamber of Commerce says, “We were thrilled to make a needed connection for the Partnership for Children of Johnston County when they let us know that they needed masks.”
Lowes Home Improvement of Smithfield agreed to donate 500 masks to the work of the Partnership.
From car seat inspections to essential trainings for child care providers, face to face work continues in many capacities. As they gear up for the school year, many of the child care providers remain in high need for personal protective gear, such as masks. Many of the masks will be used to support the needs of those front-line workers who never shut down, and who remain committed to our young children and families in Johnston County.
The Partnership for Children of Johnston County is a non-profit organization that has worked for over 20 years to improve the safety, health and emotional well-being of young children by enhancing the quality of childcare and supporting strong families.
