Welcome to the Kalamazoo Bee Club
As Covid infections and hospitalizations continue to break records, the physical and emotional toll on healthcare workers soars. A dark season is yet in front of us in the fight against this pandemic.
In support of local heroism, the Kalamazoo Bee Club is gifting one-pound jars of honey to frontline healthcare workers. Healthcare administrators, with whom we’re coordinating safe delivery and distribution, assure us that community support like this saves lives. Simple gestures–like a jar of honey they tell us–“fuels our workers to continue to find even more strength in dealing with this crisis.”
We’re working with local hospitals to give jars of honey to the heroes working in Covid patient areas. We have had some honey donated, but still have about $2000 in costs to fulfill our goal of distributing 600 one-pound jars. Please help us reward these important workers with a donation of any size. Use the DONATE button on the homepage, or contact us for an address to send a check or with any questions. We’ll be updating our efforts on the KBC Facebook page, and through our newsletter.
Meanwhile, in-person club meetings and Apiary Days are paused until further notice. BUT — we’re busy planning our 2021 Bee School. It will be an online offering, February 20. Details to come. If you’re signed up for our newsletter, you’ll receive updates there, as well as here.
We continue to try and answer questions as received, but there’s another great resource–the experts at Michigan State University! You can ask questions via this easy-to-use forum; we’ve found them very responsive and helpful.
They also have many excellent webinars for a variety of issues. Please check them out.
If you’d like to help support our work, we’d greatly appreciate your tax-deductible contribution. THANK YOU.
