With so much going on all around us in this country right now sometimes I think we forget how many of our neighbors may be struggling. Struggling with finances (because of job loss) which then can lead to personal issues within their family including stress over keeping their homes or food insecurity (the number grows daily), maybe the utilities are off and of course the pandemic. Many who have lost their jobs have also lost their health insurance. This crisis continues to grow and if you are working and feel relatively secure, please take a moment to check on your neighbors and see how they’re doing. Until we get the pandemic under control the economy will continue to suffer. Remember the retail owners and shop keepers in your town so need your patronage and support. Buy Local. Shop Local. Support Local Merchants. The jobless numbers today were the largest since last Summer. Definitely going in the wrong direction.Very scary!
