Palmer-Donavin Invites All to Nominate a Frontline Worker for a Free Door

Columbus, Ohio, April 16, 2020 | Palmer-Donavin announced its PD Cares Contest this week to reward a Frontline Worker with a beautiful new entryway.

Since the pandemic, frontline workers in essential industries have been challenged to serve their community and keep others safe. Frontline workers, which includes anyone deemed essential in manufacturing, retail, healthcare, transportation, etc., continue to selflessly work within the public to support the economy and those in the community.

“In times like these, it is reassuring to see our own employees stepping up to meet new challenges and take care of each other,” said Shawn Richard, VP of Human Resources at Palmer-Donavin. “From continuing to make deliveries to new safety measures in our facilities, we know firsthand the courage it takes as well as the challenges frontline workers face each day. I’m proud to be part of such a great team.”

To praise the heroes in local communities, Palmer-Donavin launched a contest for the month of April asking participants to nominate a frontline worker who has been bravely fighting through the pandemic.  Nominations will be reviewed, and the winner will receive a new custom front door for their home. Everyone is welcome to nominate as many frontline workers as they would like, including themselves.  The form is available at, where all are welcome to share the profession and story of the person they are nominating. The contest will close on April 30th and the winner will be announced by email and on social media on May 4th.

“Being able to offer a new front door to someone in one of our local communities is very rewarding,” shared Josh Thompson, VP of Marketing at Palmer-Donavin. “We are enthusiastic by the number of entries within the first 24 hours and are humbled by the opportunity to give a new custom entryway to someone who has been selflessly giving through this tough time.”
