The city of Santa Clarita announced the launch of the virtual campaign, Hearts for Heroes, which invites the community to thank essential workers who are providing a wide range of services during the COVID-19 outbreak.
“I regularly keep the frontline workers of this pandemic in my thoughts and prayers,” said Mayor Cameron Smyth in a prepared statement. “This new campaign gives all residents a tangible yet virtual way to show appreciation. The posts you put on social media will be uploaded to screens throughout Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital to show our health care workers that we support them and thank them for their crucial work.”
