Dear [Insert Name of the Essential Worker],
The COVID-19 Pandemic has caused each of us to have to change the way we live our lives each day. We have been asked to look out for one another in more intentional ways.
As an essential worker, a lot is being asked of you at this time. I am very grateful for your willingness to continue to [insert type of work being done]. It is important work and you are deeply appreciated!
As an essential worker, you may see children who are not being checked on by family members, schools or other service providers. The attached resource provides information about recognizing and responding to child abuse and neglect.
Missouri KidsFirst [or insert your organization’s name] is here to support you by providing information and resources to keep children safe and healthy.
Thank you for being #Essential4Kids!
