Reading Rotary has made a gift of stud earrings to health care workers at the Residence at Pearl Street.  This initiative is part of their recent emphasis on supporting and recognizing essential workers during the pandemic.
The earrings are made by Stat Studs ( a jewelry business in Reading, run by Paul Vultaggio.  They have created a COVID-19 response program.  This campaign is specifically for the nurses and health care workers on the front line fighting the COVID-19 crisis. It is a way to give back to those who are putting their own lives at risk to save those who are in dire need.
The Residence at Pearl Street had been hosting Rotary meetings at their location before the pandemic.  Rotary President Mike Collins said of this campaign:  “We saw this gift to the workers at Pearl Street to be a way to say that the community appreciates all their service to our vulnerable seniors.”
