Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic, AAA Helps Support Local Beaumont Health System

100 tablets were delivered today that will allow COVID-19 patients to connect with loved ones

DEARBORN, Mich., (April 3, 2020) — With the coronavirus global pandemic hitting the Detroit Metro area extremely hard, AAA-The Auto Club Group (ACG) is dedicated to helping our local communities. In an effort to help those working on the front lines and those being treated for COVID-19, ACG delivered 100 Samsung Galaxy Tablets to Beaumont Health System today.

"AAA is acutely aware that social distancing has limited in-person communication and has even brought about a physical disconnect in between individuals and their loved ones," said Heather Drake, Vice President of Government Relations and Public Affairs, AAA-The Auto Club Group. "These tablets will help isolated Beaumont patients being treated for COVID-19 to communicate with their loved ones."

Recognizing that we are in unprecedented times, AAA-The Auto Club Group is committed to finding ways to support our community through this crisis. ACG is working with Beaumont Health System to identify a number of ways it can help support their valiant efforts.

"Beaumont identified the need for connecting quarantined COVID patients with their loved ones via mobile devices and we quickly mobilized to meet that need," continued Drake. "AAA will continue to work with Beaumont Health moving forward to find ways in which we can support their most critical care needs in combating this crisis."
