Frontline Heroes

WHE thanks all workers putting their lives and safety at risk to serve others. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many first responders and hospital workers are being honored for their hard work and dedication to our communities. Early childhood caregivers also deserve praise for their dedication to helping children learn in safe environments.

WHE honors teachers and caregivers for their hard work and often thankless service to our children and families. These unsung heroes deserve to be thanked and praised.

Meet Gwen Marcus

WHE salutes an amazing frontline hero, Gwen Marcus, director of Project Destiny Day Care. She is a true Frontline Hero, running a 24-hour certified daycare center on the Northside caring for children of essential hospital and emergency service personnel throughout Pittsburgh. She spends her time disinfecting toys and surfaces while helping children understand the importance of social distancing.

"It’s like you took all of my years of training and said 'OK, now forget everything you’ve ever learned."
