When the Pandemic was at its peak, we were approached by the Town of Collingwood to assist with connecting the Supply Chain with End Users. We are proud to have been asked and assisted without hesitation. We appreciate all that everyone has done to assist with this at the most unimaginable time. Our thanks to the Town of Collingwood and our Local Businesses who stepped up. Below are some kudos we receive.
I would like to thank and congratulate the Optimist team for their ingenuity and tenaciousness in handling the PPE supply chain, a massive undertaking. I would also like to thank all members of the “PPE Committee’” for your time and invaluable input, it is very much appreciated.
You have all done our community a huge service at a very critical time.
Brian Saunderson Mayor,
Town of Collingwood

On behalf of the South Georgian Bay Community Health Centre we wish to send our dearest thank you to the people that took part in the making of the washable gowns. They are just amazing and so very much appreciated. Please extend our gratitude to everyone and know that they are being put to good use and keeping our clinical staff safe.
I wanted to echo the comments of the group in sharing my appreciation for all of the work you, the Optimists have done in supporting the health and well-being of our community.

We tried on the gowns and they are a an effective aid in responding to any first aid situations we may have at the Y, once we re-open. These will help in keeping our staff and volunteers safe!
Thank you so very much and these will be shared between the Collingwood and Wasaga Beach YMCA's.
Thank you, You’ve done a great job getting us through a very challenging time. We’re not through it completely, but we’re on a better path to recovery thanks to your contributions.
