Call for Support of Horizons Savannah: Giving Day, May 20th

(SAVANNAH, GA) Horizons Savannah, which has seen proven success for over 18 years in closing the “opportunity gap” for under-resourced students over the summer break, will ask the entire community to continue supporting Savannah’s youth during these uncertain times of the coronavirus by participating in its annual Horizons Giving Day on Wednesday, May 20.

Amidst concerns posed by COVID-19, this year the program is adapting from its typical close-group learning model. It will provide a virtual program so that it can continue its mission of keeping kids’ minds and bodies active during the summer months, thereby setting them up for success in the coming school year. 

Horizons, which serves students from kindergarten through high school, has a goal of raising $100,000 in one day. However, just as the summer program’s agenda is adapting, so is Giving Day

Locally, Savannah businesses have partnered with Horizons Savannah to offer give-back specials throughout the entire month of May to encourage support for the local program, while also encouraging the community to support local shops and restaurants during the global pandemic. 

These give-back opportunities include: 

  • Papa Murphy’s: 25% will be donated from every carry-out customer who says they are supporting Horizons on Wednesday, May 13.
  • Kendra Scott: 20% will be donated from every jewelry purchase with the use of online code: GIVEBACK7301 from May 19 – 20. 
  • Jason’s Deli: 15% will be donated from every carry-out order on Wednesday, May 20. 

Funds raised during Giving Day 2020 will be used to ensure the students enrolled in the Horizons Savannah summer program have access to the technology and tools necessary to participate in the program virtually. The events planned for this summer are designed to foster connectivity by providing resources that keep kids engaged, playing and learning. 

“Even before students faced the challenge of finishing their school year virtually, there was an academic regression over the summer, which is even greater among students from under-resourced families,” said Christy Edwards, executive director of Horizons Savannah. “Not only can we prevent that slide, but we can also help students make dramatic gains over the summer break each year. Because of the drastic changes we’ve adapted to in response to COVID-19, this mission is more important than ever this year.”

Horizons Savannah provides an intensive enrichment program that helps prevent the well-documented loss of academic ground over the summer vacation. Horizons students typically advance six to eight weeks in reading and math skills each summer, with national statistics showing 97 percent of Horizons high school students graduating on time and 91 percent going on to college.

Horizons Savannah had a 92 percent attendance rate last summer and has had an 89 percent student retention rate from summer to summer.

In Chatham County, the program serves over 300 students from local public schools each summer on the campuses of partner host institutions Bethesda Academy, St. Andrews School, Savannah Christian Preparatory School and The Savannah Country Day School.

Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah Remains Open for Customers

Creates Their Own Sanitizer  and  Strengthens Safety Protocols Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

(SAVANNAH, GA) Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah will remain open 24-7 to serve its customers’ emergency plumbing house calls during the COVID-19 pandemic. They are committed to using every resource available to them to ensure the safety and health of their customers and plumbing technicians.

For each service call, technicians are avoiding going into customers homes if at all possible. If they must enter the home, they have increased their protective gear to now include disposable full-body coveralls and masks in addition to the boot covers. Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah is also prescreening appointments before technicians are sent out in the field. Additionally, all team members are also undergoing training on air born pathogens and prevention methods, and tools, tablets, vehicles and equipment are sanitized after each job. These local precautions go above and beyond the standards set for Roto-Rooter branches across the nation to ensure they are able to serve all the plumbing calls they receive while preventing the spread of the coronavirus.

While most of the country is experiencing a shortage of hand sanitizer and disinfectant, Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah contacted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for guidelines, and has made its own disinfecting products to ensure its technicians have the tools they need to protect their customers and themselves from the spread of the virus. They are also in compliance with the Office of Clinical Evidence and Analysis, Office of Product Evaluation and Quality (OCEA).

“Now that we are all taking responsibility and doing our part to prevent the spread of this virus by staying home as much as possible, we really need everything, especially our plumbing, to be in working order,” said Sherry Daniel, owner and CEO of Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah. “We are committed to making everyone as comfortable as possible in their own homes so they can focus on educating their kids, working from home, spring cleaning and any other projects they have taken on within their own four walls.”

The CDC is still investigating whether the virus can spread through sewage systems, but there is no evidence of that being a concern at this time.

“Ultimately, it is vital to keep people’s drains flowing,” said Daniel. “We are partnering with a new company, ‘Low Country Laterals’. They are able to install cure-in-place liner, which allows our technicians to avoid entering into a customer’s home entirely.” The cure-in-place liner uses damaged pipe as a conduit and installs a new PVC and resin liner from the access point to the public sewer. Technicians are able to access lines with little excavation and can restore a home’s building sewer to like-new condition.For more information about the steps Roto-Rooter Plumbers of Savannah is taking to keep its staff and customers safe, visit the national Roto-Rooter website at https://www.rotorooter.com/covid-19/.

Leopold’s Ice Cream Launched Giveaway for Free Pints of Ice Cream During COVID-19

(SAVANNAH, GA) Leopold’s Ice Cream, locally and family owned since 1919, held Scoops of Happiness, a daily ice cream giveaway on social media that invited locals in Savannah to nominate their friends and family for a chance to receive a free pint of their super-premium, homemade ice cream. The campaign lasted 14 days.

At the end of each day, one entry was randomly chosen to win two pints of ice cream: one for the nominee, and one for the person who made the nomination, for a total of 28 pints.

“Ice cream makes people happy, it’s a well-known fact,” said Stratton Leopold, owner of Leopold’s Ice Cream. “Right now, many in our community are isolated and feeling the effects of social distancing and the most important thing we can all do is share happiness. We started Scoops of Happiness because we wanted to give people in Savannah something to get excited about.”

In addition to launching this giveaway, Leopold’s Ice Cream has shifted their operations to reflect local and statewide safety guidelines issued in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Savannah Leaders Join Together in SavannahSTRONG Sing-Along Video

Savannah Leaders Join Together in SavannahSTRONG Sing-Along Video

(SAVANNAH, GA) In the midst of the uncertainty that surrounds the City of Savannah during this pandemic, Cecilia Russo Turner of Cecilia Russo Marketing, LLC brought the City’s Mayor and other local business, government and community leaders “together forever” in song, showing the world that the sun will come out in Savannah, Georgia, “tomorrow.”

“Savannah is so strong and I know that together we will come out of this better and stronger – hopefully sooner rather than later,” said Russo Turner. “But, in the meantime, we need to focus on something uplifting. My hope is that this video will be a warm, authentic, virtual hug.”

Choosing the “Tomorrow” and “I Don’t Need Anything But You” songs from the musical “Annie” for this sing-along seemed like an obvious choice for Russo Turner. The original Broadway production, which debuted in 1977, tells a story of an 11-year-old orphan finding love, happiness and family just as America looked forward to future prosperity in the wake of the Great Depression.

Now, almost 50 years later, the lyrics, which have stood the test of time, continue to instill a sense of hope and comfort, even with the emotional context of the current cultural climate. “These two songs in any other time, sung in any other way, have never had as powerful a meaning as they do right now,” said Russo Turner. “When you hear these words sung by these leaders while you are feeling what we are all feeling right now, you get goosebumps. This gives a whole new meaning to Savannah Strong.”

Russo Turner said she was inspired by her best friend Ann who she turns to for everything. “It was like an ah-ha moment,” she said. “Whenever I’m sad and depressed and looking for a little direction, I have always been able to turn to my best friend.  She’s like a sister to me and her name is Ann Searcy. Since we were three years old, I always have and always will call her Annie. Then it hit me… let’s all sing a song or two from Annie!”The video is available to watch on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXGMRyAp8OA

The Savannah leaders featured in this video are listed in order of appearance as follows:

“I truly cannot thank each of these wonderful leaders enough for entrusting us with their voices and their joyful faces,” said Russo Turner. “The sun will come out tomorrow. We will get through this if we all stick together. And now is the time to unify our city, our country and our world.”

(BEAUFORT/BLUFFTON/HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC) Pinnacle Medical Group, the locally owned and operated parent company of Pinnacle Plastic Surgery, PURE Medical Spa and Beaufort Dermatology, has reached out to Beaufort Memorial, Hilton Head and Coastal Carolina Hospitals and offered to relieve their emergency departments by accepting laceration repair and minor skin injury patients directly in the Bluffton office, located at 7 Mallet Way, and in the Beaufort office, located at 1096 Ribaut Road. 

“Our hope is to divert patients from the emergency room to our office in an effort to save the hospital beds, emergency personnel, and supplies available for potential COVID-19 patients,” said Dr. Audrey Klenke, plastic surgeon and principal of Pinnacle Medical Group

If the patient has a minor or complex laceration, whether it would normally require a consultant to be called or not, the patient is offered to be seen in the office for evaluation and repair saving them time and the potential exposure to COVID-19. 

Patients will be given Pinnacle Medical Group’s contact information and instructed to ensure contact has been made and a plan in place before leaving hospital. The ER provider can communicate details directly with the Pinnacle team, which reduces any confusion. Patients who need simple suture removal and other minor procedures appropriate for a plastic surgery office can also be diverted.

The hours of operation for these procedures fall under the practice’s temporarily modified office hours of 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday for the Bluffton office and 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday / 8:00 a.m. – 12 p.m. Friday for the Beaufort office. After-hours services may become available depending on the demand for appointments.

However, it is important to stress that we will recommend an office visit if there is a more serious issue or need for surgery, such as a patient that has skin cancer that needs to be excised.”  

The new telehealth appointments will be available between the practice’s temporarily modified office hours of 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
