City conveys appreciation to businesses, others 

COVINGTON, Ky. - Businesses and organizations continue to generously donate and share PPE (personal protective equipment) with First Responders and others at the City of Covington who are working to keep the public safe.
 
Just this week: 
  • A & P Technology donated 120 face shields to the Covington Fire Department after the Cincinnati manufacturer redirected its shop and fabrication department to help health workers and First Responders across the region. 
  • Car-Part.com donated 50 KN95 masks. 
  • A donor that wanted to remain anonymous gave 125 N95 masks. 
  • And Ruwe Family Pharmacy - with help from the Chip Terry Fund for First Responders and Phipps Reprographics - dropped off a box of personal-size hand sanitizer, spray bottles, and coupons. The pharmacy has locations in the Latonia and Roebling Point neighborhoods. 

Ruwe Family Pharmacy’s Jeanne Zeis drops off hand sanitizer to City Hall.

“Ruwe Family Pharmacy appreciates all of the hard work and dedication of our First Responders - this is our way of saying ‘thank you,’ ” registered pharmacist Jeanne Zeis said.
 
City Manager David Johnston said the donations not only helped keep City employees safe but also were an emotional boost.
 
“This is a difficult time for everybody, and it means a lot to know we have support in the community,” he said. “Thank you to all.”
