One of 8THIRTYFOUR’s strongest assets is our vast network of clients, partners, community leaders, friends, family…the list goes on. We know this will be our saving grace in the coming months as we adjust to our new norm and we grieve what our community has lost.
It’s easy to focus on the negative right now with staggering unemployment numbers, people getting sick and dying, healthcare workers putting it all on the line to protect us and stories of businesses going under. We all know someone that has been affected by this pandemic. It’s disheartening, to say the least, and we are all feeling pretty damn helpless.
We will persevere.
We don’t have the answers, but we want to encourage you to focus on community. Our community will come out of this stronger. Stories are already emerging of neighbors helping neighbors and companies stepping up to supply much-needed PPE. We are stronger than this, and we will get through this.
Focus on the positive, and take these words of encouragement, humor and inspiration to heart. Thank you to all the community voices who pitched in and contributed. We love you and we will continue to support you in any way we can.
So we can continue to share uplifting stories, we encourage you to tag 8THIRTYFOUR in any social media posts and also use the hashtag #834CommunityCares.
