While our stores are closed, we are ramping up our online presence. Crisis is our passion and our mission. We will continue to be a circle of protection not only for the vulnerable but also for YOU, since we are all vulnerable right now. While we have shut down many functions to honor the Governor's Executive Order, we continue to carry on the most essential functions to our mission. Our finance department continues to work, mostly through remote access. Our 911 line and our phone calls are also being answered remotely during regular business hours. Since the Michigan state governor identified security and communications staff as essential personnel, these efforts continue. While we are taking precautions, we are not afraid. We will continue to serve our wounded with the same passion as before. You can call on us—we will be here for you.
The effects of COVID-19 have reached nearly every corner of the globe, putting already vulnerable populations at even greater risk for exploitation. As our brave partners continue to serve on the front lines, it is more important than ever to ensure their beautiful handiwork continues to sell. In an answer to this call, you have stepped up and asked for the most impactful ways to support us. We designed the EffectiveEmpowerment collection to narrow your search by featuring products with the highest net value for our partners. Every piece you purchase empowers, so allow this collection to guide and not limit your generosity and exploration!
