Thank you, first responders! The Clarks Ace Hardware Team appreciates you!
Between late 2021 and early 2022, our local health care workers and first responders were tasked with new challenges that came with the fast-spreading Covid-19 variant, Omicron. We watched as hospitals were filled to capacity, again. EMTs were turned away from their closest ERs and nurses and doctors were exhausted. Clarks Ace Hardware team members wanted to find a way to help & show their appreciation during the surge.
We put together over 1,100 snack kits for first responders & hit the road! Our Clarks Ace Hardware team stopped by four area hospitals, four local fire stations and the Howard County Police Department to show our gratitude to all that they do for our community.
