St. Anne’s-Belfield School has been established as a drop-off location for the Charlottesville-U.Va.-Albemarle Regional Emergency Operations Center, with assistance from the United Way of Greater Charlottesville, for those in the community wishing to support local COVID-19 efforts.
“There has been an overwhelming outpour of individuals wanting to support the medical professionals, first responders, law enforcement officers, postal workers, and truck drivers/transportation professionals in our community,” says Maribel Street, acting emergency management coordinator. “Now, there’s an easy way to do just that.”
Alumna Emily Pelliccia ‘91, deputy chief of operations for the Charlottesville Fire Department, helped coordinate this effort and establish the School as a drop-off location.
