We hope this email finds you and yours feeling well as we all continue to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to reach out to our community and share a few resources with you - including a few interesting websites with "virtual visits" to keep you entertained while at home. (Feel free to email Molly if you have any additional websites to recommend.) Please stay safe and we look forward to hearing from you and staying connected during this challenging time.

Thank you to everyone that was a part of the success of the campaign - from sharing, to donating, to liking social media posts. It was great to see the community so engaged.
