Two staff members from the United Cerebral Palsy organization (UCP) visited Jeff Loyall, EVP of the Donley’s-Turner Team, at the Cleveland Clinic / Case Western Reserve University Health Education Campus Project, to discuss and thank a few construction workers for taking the time to talk to one of their children that was outside the site. The UCP staff said that the conversation and visit was all the child talked about for the rest of that day.
After the Donley’s-Turner team heard about this interaction, the HEC team collectively thought it would be a great experience for the child to visit the jobsite. Three construction workers on the HEC site, Jon Centofanti and Joe Principe, Carpenters for Giorgi Interiors, and Anthony Nail, Carpenter for OCP, took the child for a tour. Anthony Nail gave him shirts from the Carpenters Union and Donley’s outfitted him in a Donley’s-Turner hard hat, hi-vis vest and safety glasses.
UCP and the child’s mother were overwhelmed with the genuine kindness from the construction trades and the unique opportunity this child was given to get out and explore the project site. This visit helps remind us that random acts of kindness can go far and mean so much, like it did to this child and his family.
