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. 

Frisco Resale and Frisco's only community Food Pantry
Re-Open Doors

Frisco Resale and our Food Pantry re-opened their doors a week ago (last Monday) to eager patrons and clients ready to shop. Both buildings operated at the required 25% capacity and followed social distancing and other safety measures.
One of the most striking changes was Frisco Resale’s newly designed sales floor with its upscale look, modern feel and new merchandise with tags throughout.
"It was beautiful!" commented Alicia Samples on Facebook. "We are SO glad you all are back and safe. Thanks for everything!"

Food Pantry clients were able to return to their client choice shopping and choose their foods their families would eat. Of course the clients practiced social distancing at the checkout counters and throughout the pantry. Select volunteers were thrilled to be able to return as well.

We are so happy to be able to open our doors once again to our Frisco and Frisco ISD community. Your continued support of both our Frisco Resale and Frisco Family Services Food Pantry is vital to the services we provide to our neighbors in crisis.
