How You Can Help
Follow the Rules
Repurpose a Hobby or Skill
Like to sew? A movement to make masks for hospital workers is in full swing. Cloth masks don’t meet N95 safety standards, but providers may use them if they’re all that’s available. There are a wide range of patterns online.
A Boland associate's daughter is making masks after she heard there was a shortage. She pulled out her sewing machine and when she is not working from home or entertaining her two-year-old son, she is making face masks for the locals that need them! Please reach out if you know anyone in need.
A D.C. restaurant, Merzi, offers the opportunity to sponsor meals to “front line” heroes: Hospital workers, CVS workers, first responders, etc. This is just one of many fundraisers in the area that is supporting these heroes!
Our team said THANK YOU to our hospital heroes at Inova Fairfax Hospital and Adventist HealthCare by providing lunch for the staff. To all of the doctors, nurses and facility management teams, we are grateful for all you are doing to keep our communities safe and health
Show You Care
Our elderly are very isolated at this time and cannot have visitors. Our Boland Cares team is working to put a smile on their face with a handwritten note or a drawing. If you mail us a note, we will make sure it gets to an elderly person in need of a smile. Get your family involved and have your children draw a picture or write a note.
