Q: What has been your COVID-19 response?
A: The safety of Tend to You’s employees, volunteers, partners, and clientele is of utmost importance. Due to COVID-19, we will be taking extra precautions to ensure that our packages are sanitized during all stages of packaging. All employees and volunteers have been asked to stay home if they are feeling ill or having any COVID-19 symptoms. We plan to act responsibility in order to aid in the decreased spread of the virus. All in-person community events are following state and federal recommendations. Thank you so much for your interest and support during this uncertain, difficult time.
