PARKLAND, FL- The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a shortage of many items, but the most dire need is the protective KN95 masks for essential workers. Stand with Parkland saw a need within our community and met that need head on. This past Wednesday Stand with Parkland donated KN95 masks to Broward Sheriff's Office Parkland District and Coral Springs Police.
“I can’t express the feeling you get when the citizens who we are looking after, take the time and effort to look after us," said Coral Springs Police Chief Clyde Parry. "We are extremely thankful to work in a community that is filled with good, caring people. I would like to thank Tony and Jennifer Montalto, and Gena Hoyer for caring about the men and women who make up the Coral Springs Police Department. I know I speak for my entire department when I say we appreciate their support.”
Stand with Parkland, the locally founded school safety advocacy organization, works to make change in our schools to ensure every child can attend school without fear. Stand with Parkland was glad for the opportunity to provide protection for the local men and women that help secure our schools.
"They protect our schools and it's a good thing to help protect them," Tony Montalto, President of Stand with Parkland, said of the effort.
"We were completely surprised by the unexpected donation of masks for our deputies by Stand with Parkland. Mr. Montalto, his wife, and Mrs. Hoyer personally visited the district and presented the masks to us. We are extremely grateful for their generosity and are proud of our relationship with them personally and the group as a whole," said Chris Mulligan, Captain of BSO Parkland.
