We're doing our part to keep people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, and so can you.
As the world mobilizes to stop the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic, many people are searching for ways to support the economy and cultivate a sense of unity amid chaos. Business owners and workers in our communities have taken a hit as we begin to "shelter in place" and "social distance" across the US, but we are mobilizing to support them in creative ways. In this crisis, however, we must not forget the unseen workers in our supply chains. They help to put food in our bodies and clothes on our backs, yet they are often most vulnerable when a crisis strikes.
