Gibson’s Pandemic Response Team, our executive leadership team and Board of Directors continue to remain steadfast, proactive and thorough in our planning and response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we have from the beginning of this event, we continue to focus on our employee's health and wellbeing, our stakeholders and supporting the communities in which we operate. The Pandemic Response Team has now transitioned its focus to re-entry guidance and continues to meet regularly with executives and board members. The team also continues to monitor developments related to the pandemic and develop appropriate contingency plans for our head office, field sites and U.S. Operations to ensure a cautious and well-planned return of employees to work sites while implementing safety protocols to protect their health and safety.
As we enter the Re-entry phase, our priorities continue to be:
Health and Safety of Workforce
We continue to build upon government guidelines and restrictions to ensure we align with health authorities and government recommendations in each of our operating areas while following state, provincial, municipal and federal guidelines.
Continuity of Operations
Gibson has continued to ensure that we are leaders in our field and remain well-positioned to navigate the changes in operations due to COVID-19. Our strong portfolio and assets remain; and we continue to deliver valuable services to our customers and stakeholders.
Gibson has continued to update employees, stakeholders and investors on our business plans and our response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. We have held monthly town hall meetings, with leaders from across all business segments providing updates on projects and operations. Collectively, Gibson has adjusted and pivoted our operations to ensure we continue to meet our stakeholder's and customer's needs.
Supporting and giving back to the communities we operate in has remained at the forefront of Gibson's pandemic response. Building off of the #GibsonBuzzChallenge that raised $150,000 in April for charities impacted by COVID-19, our employees have continued to show solidarity and support their local communities. In June, our Move for Mental Health initiative was launched. With the pandemic increasing the need for mental health services, employees from across our operating areas raised funds for local charities and awareness for mental health. Over $62,000 was raised and more than 50 employees participated in various events.
We have partnered with local long-term care facilities in our operating areas, and employees wrote letters to seniors and residents who were in isolation and unable to socialize with their peers. This was a way to show we care and provide interaction for vulnerable populations who are feeling alone. Gibson employees also nominated 10 care centers to receive care packages to help residents feel connected with their communities.
Gibson has continued to give back to the front-line workers, who do so much to keep us all safe during these times. Employees volunteered and provided a free lunch to emergency room staff at the Alberta Children's Hospital to show our appreciation for all that they do. Gibson has continued to find meaningful ways to give back to our communities virtually and have engaged in virtual volunteer initiatives that allow employees to volunteer and engage with their community.
