What We're Doing to Help
Since the craziness of COVID-19 started, our family has been doing extra and giving back in various ways - supporting local restaurants and businesses, blood donation (my first time ever!) and I sent a gift card to my hair dresser, since I know her income has been seriously impacted. Today, with Courtland’s help, I also made a sizable donation to the Perry-Morrice-Shaftsburg Emergency Relief Fund (Food Bank) and to the St Vincent DePaul Society through our church. I feel so fortunate to be able to give back and help those who are hurting during this crazy time. Thanks again!!
I enjoy giving back to the community in many ways, having an opportunity to give back during the COVID19 pandemic using extra money generously provided in our paycheck this month is just one of the reasons I'm proud to work for Steve, and Courtland.
Best regards to you and your family... stay safe!
• Meals for medical professionals working in area hospitals through FLAG (Front Line Appreciation Group).
• Meals for families in need through food banks in Oakland County (Pontiac Community Foundation & Oakland University,) Macomb County (Heritage Church & MCREST) and Traverse City (Father Fred Foundation)
During this time we’ve been supporting local restaurants as well as sending encouraging gifts. Along with Courtland’s generous “Pay it Forward” bonus, we made a nice-sized donation to both the Community Compassion Network food pantry, as well as the Care Store that provides household staples to those who are struggling. Thanks again Steve!!!
It’s times like these that either bring out the best in people or the worst. At Courtland, we want to be a team player. We realize this is a tough time for all business owners, including ourselves, especially with the uncertainty that lies ahead. But, let’s not lose heart. If we band together, we can be stronger. We can hold each other up and shine a light that brings a sense of unity and purpose that goes beyond ourselves.
Honestly, we don’t know what this looks like, because it’s just the beginning. It’s something that’s sure to evolve in the days ahead. Maybe the “We’re In This Together” bandwagon starts with a commitment to bring a smile to those around us, however we can. When we work together and think of others, there is a powerful sense of community that makes us stronger.
So, jump aboard the “We’re In This Together” bandwagon, and let us know some ideas of how we can help you, and if you want to be a part of a movement that shines hope in dark times. What part can you play in this? It doesn’t have to be huge, but we can all do something small. When we combine those small steps, together, we can shine a glimmer of light on the road ahead!
