Since the pandemic began impacting daily life, public health workers have emphasized the importance of hand washing as a way to stop the spread of COVID. Many of the most vulnerable people in our community have little access to places where they can wash their hands. As businesses have converted to to-go models, and their restrooms are closed to the public, people who are homeless or marginally housed are completely unable to protect themselves in the most basic of ways, by washing their hands. The WaSH stations are a way to ensure that all people have access to soap and clean water. They help create a community where all people have access to a necessity which also promotes public health. We are grateful to Beyond Walls for their generosity and creativity; we’re lucky to have such amazing partners in Lynn!
