Dear Friends and Neighbors,
As we end the first week of sheltering in place, I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for doing your part in helping to keep us all safe.
I know many are suffering hardships – being laid off from your job, having your business closed or having loved ones fall ill with the virus. It is very likely that the worst is still ahead of us. Our patience and endurance will be tested. But I know that we can get through this crisis and beat this virus if we all work together and care for each other.
I am amazed at the acts of caring and kindness that I see throughout our community. Restaurants that are out of business yet giving out food to those who need it. Companies converting their production lines to make protective gear for our Healthcare Heroes working on the front lines of this pandemic. Every day our office receives calls from companies and individuals asking, “How can I help?” With each call we receive, I am filled with even greater confidence in the strength of our community.
Thank you to everyone who is donating their time, their labor and their materials. Very special thanks go to our Healthcare Heroes, working unimaginable hours and who are risking their lives to save ours. We owe you a debt we can never repay. Finally, thank you to everyone who stayed home this week. That is the most important contribution you can make and the only thing that will slow down the spread of this virus.
As always, we are here if you need us. Our office is still open Monday through Friday, from 8:00am to 4:30pm. Please call or email us if you need information, assistance or connected to health or financial services.
Thank you again for your patience and your perseverance during this crisis. Stay strong. Stay home – I’m sure there are shows on Netflix that you haven’t watched yet. Remember that we are all in this together, and that we will prevail.
