This message is from the organizers of the May 16th Miracle:

Our top priority for the May 16th Miracle is the health and safety of all participants. We have been working closely with the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit and Dr. David Colby, Chatham-Kent Medical Officer of Health since we began our planning. We are following their recommendations on how to ensure a safe and contact-free process, maintain physical distancing, practice healthy hand hygiene and related safety protocols every step of the way.

It is important we ensure 100% adherence to this safety strategy.

In-town Safety Protocol:

  • We are asking residents to wash their hands, then wipe down and dry their donation, place the donation on their porch/sidewalk or apartment building lobby, and remain inside while the volunteer picks up the donation to ensure proper physical distancing.
  • Donation pick-up volunteers are instructed to remain outside (i.e. not entering homes) to ensure physical distancing from residents at all times and practice all safe hand hygiene practices while collecting donations.
  • All passengers and drivers in donation pick-up vehicles must family members that you are currently in isolation with.
  • Volunteers will have appropriate PPE as recommended by Chatham-Kent Public Health.

Rural Drop-Off Depot Safety Protocol:

  • We are asking residents to wash their hands, then wipe down and dry their donation, and place their donation in the trunk of their vehicle.
  • For donations arriving in pick-up trucks, we ask that drivers ensure that donations are protected from any possible contamination by placing donations in truck beds or cargo areas, and we ask that drivers ensure the cargo area is covered and clean from any dirt, objects, etc.
  • During removal from the trunk/cargo area, the volunteer will monitor the area to ensure no contamination is occurring.
  • There will be clear directional and health & safety signage at all depots
  • Volunteers will be at each depot to direct vehicles and remove donations from the vehicles.
  • Depot volunteers will observe all physical distancing rules.
  • All vehicle passengers and the driver must stay in their vehicle at all times.
  • One depot volunteer will remove donations from the vehicle.
  • Volunteers will have appropriate PPE as recommended by Chatham-Kent Public Health.

Please share this information widely. We can make this miracle happen together, and we will do so with safety as our top priority. For more information please email May16MiracleCK@gmail.com or visit www.May16Miracle.com.
