… for those who have been displaced from their homes and do not know when they will be able to return
… for those who have no other place to go and are living in their damaged homes while they await relief
… for the businesses in our community who are trying to begin operations again
… for our frontline workers, including those in healthcare, fire department, sheriff’s office, maintenance workers, grocery store workers, truck drivers, and then countless others who will be working so hard during this time
… for our community leaders
… for those who are volunteering to serve
… for the workers who are on the ground helping restore order to our community
… for the families of the workers who will be away from home for an extended period of time as they help restore our community
