How to Help: Say Thanks

March 24, 2022

This week we are continuing to offer recommendations about how to show support for the essential workers that have been helping all of us over the past eight months.  This seems like an obvious one—especially given the Thanksgiving holiday—but this is just a simple reminder to say thanks.  Expressing gratitude comes in many different forms like notes or gifts but the easiest option is just to say the words “thank you”.

Those words can mean a lot to someone who has been asked to continue their work since the pandemic began, showing up every day, wearing a mask for a full shift, and keeping their cool in the midst of frustrated or upset people. Grocery cashiers, health care personnel, letter carriers, delivery drivers, teachers are all providing necessary services to keep things moving as well as things can. When you are able to tell them you are thankful for their help, it’s a reminder that what they do has value and they are appreciated.

On this Thanksgiving, we hope you will share some gratitude with your community.  For those in our community—our brand partners, our factory families, and you, our renewed customers—we say THANK YOU!
