Challenging Times Filled with Blessings
So much has changed over the past month as our community continues to deal with the challenges of
COVID–19. Demand for basic necessities has increased but we feel triumphant in saying that we are still here to
provide food, help with rent and utilities, and more, to neighbors in our community who are navigating their way through this pandemic. While many of you isolated indoors, we worked hard to incorporate new safety and health protocols to provide and maintain a safe environment for everyone who would visit, work or volunteer on our premises when the time came to open up our doors.
After all, the safety and well-being of our clients, customers, staff, volunteers and donors remains a top priority.
So we rolled up our sleeves and implemented more safety measures based on CDC, state and local government guidelines. When we re-opened the doors to our Food Pantry and Frisco Resale on May 11, we were ready.
We required all staff and volunteers to wear masks and gloves at all times and to clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces throughout the day.
We installed protective shields at checkout registers and marked designated spots on the floor so that people could follow social distancing rules.
And of course we restricted the number of individuals in both the Resale Store and Food Pantry per state and local government guidelines.
So how did we do when we opened this past Monday? You tell us. At the end of this newsletter there is a short poll about our Resale Store, and we hope that our readers would give us some valuable feedback.
In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the May newsletter and remain healthy and safe.
