We’re proud of our team and the work we’ve done during these uncertain times. I’ve seen them fill new roles to meet new needs and use their creativity to combat the challenges COVID-19 has presented. Across the board, from healthcare providers to facilities management, each team member is an invaluable part of how we will beat this pandemic. We’re proud of our community. The support we’ve received has been very emotional and unexpected. It’s been inspiring to see so many people reach out to show support or donate personal protective equipment to protect our team. This issue of LIFT is a special one. It’s a thank you to our team members and community for everything you’ve done during the pandemic. Challenges are best met when we work together, and we’ve demonstrated that over recent days. Just like we’ve been here during COVID-19, we’ll be here as things return to “normal.” We’re proud to be here whenever, and however, you need us. Greg R.
