an Octane travel trailer being used for patient visits at one of the Goshen Health urgent care centers. Jayco also provided medical gloves, masks and safety glasses to Goshen Health, Beacon Health and the Goshen Fire Department. In addition, a travel trailer is reserved for quarantine use at the Middlebury Fire Department should the need arise. Airstream: As the coronavirus continues to impact travel, work, and family life, Airstream has taken a variety of steps to support its customers and associates. To support the community in west central Ohio, Airstream donated travel trailers to local health officials for use at mobile testing facilities. Members of the sewing department volunteered their time to manufacture more than 3,000 PPE masks for local health departments, hospitals, first responders, and Airstream associates, as well as dozens of protective gowns for use by the local sheriff's department. Airstream is creating a variety of informational and inspirational content for the community, with guides to disinfecting a travel trailer, staying fit in small spaces, and remote learning. The company's Round-Trip travel guides provide trip planning advice, and it created a special Spotify playlist with music made for focus and productivity. Production resumed May 4, and Airstream instituted policies to ensure associates are safe and remain healthy, including temperature checks, safe social distancing measures and continued disinfecting measures. Airstream is committed to ensuring the safety of its staff, customers. Heartland RV: Numerous Heartland staff worked together to gather PPE and RVs that could be used in the community. In an effort to support local health care workers and response teams during the COVID-19 pandemic, Heartland RVs was able to make multiple donations throughout Elkhart County during March and April. This included donating more than 400 face masks and 700 chemical protective suits to Beacon Health System, three toy haulers to the Elkhart County COVID-19 Incident Management Team, to be used for additional office space, and an RV to Family Christian Development, which allowed the organization to open up its baby immunization clinic. "With these donations, we felt it was absolutely necessary and essential to do what we can to help our community," says Ryan Juday, president of Heartland RVs. "This community does so much to support our industry and we wanted to do our part to put a little heart back in Elkhart." "This is an unprecedented time in our history, and one that requires us to come together and help where we can," says Martin. "We are proud of our companies, as they have and will continue to step up to support our communities and the health care professionals doing the hard work of fighting this disease. Our hope is that we can look back at this time in history and say that we all cared for one another and because of that, we came out stronger than ever."
