During the COVID-19 pandemic, the team at J&M Pool Company is especially grateful for the professionals who are putting their lives on the line daily. We wanted to find a meaningful way to express our thanks to these heroes. Through our Facebook, we have encouraged our followers to nominate healthcare professionals, first responders, and food service workers to receive a prize of $500 for each field. The contest allowed for self-entry or entering a worker of your choice. The contests have been running a week at a time before drawing a winner. Our team was thrilled with the response. The comments have told the stories of so many deserving healthcare professionals, first responders, and food service workers making a difference in our community. Although we wish that we could gift each one of them with the prize, we must select our winners by drawing.

Drawn on April 20th, our healthcare hero winner was Carrie Couey. Carrie is known for her hard work ethic, always willing to stay after her shift at the pharmacy to make sure that patients receive the best care. As a wife and mother, she carries the weight of helping others and protecting her family. We are grateful for her commitment to the health of our community.

On April 27th, Jeff Lander was selected as our first responder winner. His dedication serving our community is admired and appreciated by our whole team.

Lastly on May 4th, Ashley Phillips was selected as our food service professional winner. Keeping our community fed during this uncertain time is essential and so worthwhile. Our hope is that the prizes will be a reminder that their sacrifice is truly appreciated.

To all our everyday heroes, stay safe and know that your community is deeply grateful.
