TDEG Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
With the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, the last few weeks have been challenging for everyone. Many of us are going through feelings of uncertainty and sadness. Here at TDEG, as we continue to work remotely, we strive to remain connected and look out for each other and those around us. Through it all we are continually amazed at how resourceful and creative people can be while still practicing social distancing. The stories that surround us of selflessness and gratitude give the encouragement to continue moving forward and remain hopeful.

To all of our clients, associates, friends and families: Stay safe, stay healthy!
