Effort by Rockville, Md., Skilled Nursing Facility Honors World Social Work Day
ROCKVILLE, Md., April 6, 2021 — In honor of World Social Work Day, Collingswood Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center recently partnered with the Mayor of Rockville’s Office to recognize social workers at Johns Hopkins Medicine’s Suburban Hospital in Rockville, and specifically their efforts during COVID-19. Pictured (L-R) are Kerri Donnelly, director of business development and community relations at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports Collingswood; Councilmember Monique Ashton; and Mayor Bridget Donnell Newton.
The Mayor’s Office created personalized certificates for the social workers, which were signed, sealed and presented in a gold folder. On behalf of Collingswood, Donnelly delivered the certificates and edible treats donated by the facility for the World Social Work Day event at the hospital.
“The team at Collingswood wanted to honor local social workers and brought the idea to Mayor Newton and Councilmember Ashton, who readily agreed to the importance of it,” said Donnelly. “The social workers were so touched and appreciative of the Mayor’s certificates specifically acknowledging their efforts over the course of the past year. They are true healthcare heroes and well deserving of the recognition.”
Each year, the International Federation of Social Workers designates World Social Work Day as the third Tuesday in March. This year’s theme was “Ubuntu: I Am Because We Are – Strengthening Social Solidarity and Global Connectedness.” The Federation and its national members strive for social justice, human rights and inclusive, sustainable social development through the promotion of social work best practice and engagement in international cooperation.
