Our healthcare workers, first responders, cooks, grocery store employees, truck drivers and many others are keeping us safe by continuing to do their work in-person, as always, at a time when risks for their health abound.

The Milton Interfaith Clergy Association invites townspeople to step outside or open their windows at 7 p.m. on Fridays during this season of pandemic and clap, or bang a pot, or ring a bell for 5 minutes!  We will “clap because we care” about the heroic work they are doing, and we will be joining communities across the globe in a global expression of support for those fighting COVID-19.

Make a video “clapclip” of yourselves and your families and neighbors clapping or ringing or making noise for a few moments.  Post your video on social media with #ClapBecauseWeCareMilton, set your video to ‘public,’ and we will compile these into a longer video to share with our friends at Beth Israel Deaconness Hospital in Milton and others on the front lines.  St. Michael’s will toll its bell for 5 minutes at 7 p.m. on Friday as well, each Friday through this season of distancing!
