Surviving COVID-19

Dear Friends,

On March 1st, New  York introduced its first coronavirus patient, a 39-year-old woman who contracted it while traveling abroad.  And, only 6 days later on March 7th, we were placed in a state of emergency.  By March 29th, the media had reported 1,218 deaths, making us the state with the largest number of COVID-19 cases and victims in the nation.  As a result, Davco quickly shifted its operations from building communities one brick at a time to mend the broken fences left behind by the Virus. 

Many of our employees have been directly impacted by the rapid spread of COVID-19.

On March 18th, Maryanne, our accountant who is currently battling cancer, learned that her niece was exposed to the Virus and needed immediate medical attention.  Both Maryanne and her niece were placed in isolation.    On March 22nd, I learned that my best friend's daughter was exposed to and contracted the Virus.  She has been hospitalized since.  

Our community is suffering, and I hope you will consider making a small donation to assist our employees to meet the growing needs of their family and loved ones.

Like many other small businesses, we were forced by law to stop all but a few projects considered essential.  Our employees are in a state of emergency, and we need your help to assist them with providing for their families during this most difficult time. 

No donation is too small and will help our 20 men and their families.  

Many of our men have worked alongside you, or even for you, throughout the years.  Please help support them by donating today

Davco will match each donation dollar for dollar, assume all administrative costs, and continue to support our men by increasing their allotment of sick and vacation time.  Funds from this fundraiser will temporarily help with living expenses until entitlement benefits are received.  `

Please help us take care of the men who have taken care of all of us.

With tremendous gratitude,
