The couple have also launched a “Tie a Red Ribbon” campaign to show support for the front-liners as well as Covid-19 patients and people under quarantine at Kanoa Resort and the Pacific Islands Club who will receive “care packages” from the Holls. Each care package consists of chocolates, playing cards, an inspirational book, and a handwritten letter.
“The patients and people under quarantine are lonely and isolated so we’re hoping to cheer them up a bit,” Mrs. Holl said.
For the task force members and other front-liners, she said she and her husband have collected “thank you” messages from friends, groups of people and organizations that were posted on Facebook and other social media platforms.
“We compiled the messages and printed them out in cards that we distributed to the task force members, healthcare providers and other front-liners assigned to the designated quarantine areas,” Mrs. Holl said. “It’s just a simple gesture to show our appreciation for what they do.”
As for the “Tie a Red Ribbon” campaign, motorists and community members are encouraged to tie red ribbons on their vehicles or trees or at their front doors. “They can also pin a red ribbon on their shirt or dress,” Mrs. Holl said, adding that she and her husband will distribute red ribbons to those who want to join the campaign.
“It is important that we show support to our front-liners, especially the doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers that don’t have families here on Saipan,” she said. “They have sacrificed so much and are risking their lives for the safety and health of the public.”
