Essential Workers Service Project
Join us in a campaign to support essential workers who have become everyday heroes by continuing to work to ensure we can have as normal a life as possible during the pandemic. Attached is a list you can support by sending letters, cards, and/or artwork. Remember, essential workers aren't just those you see...think of the janitors, food production workers and other folks who may be overlooked, but who are the backbone of many of these facilities.
