The impact of COVID-19 has demanded dramatic economic, lifestyle, and parenting changes. Schools have closed, businesses are hurting and social routines have been disrupted.
Recently, I’ve spoken to a number of Vermonters who are facing these challenges head on. From school bus drivers delivering meals to students in rural Vermont, to volunteers sewing masks for healthcare workers, Vermonters are finding ingenious ways to foster community, creativity, and hope in this difficult time.
I am asking you to share your stories with our campaign so that we can amplify the spirit of #VermontStrong with stories of humanity, resiliency, and community from across Vermont. Please send us a message at email@example.com or tag us on social media with your stories of community and solidarity and we’ll share your stories of #VermontStrong.
I want you to know that you are not in this alone and that my priority will always be the health and safety of our communities. See the resources below to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
We’re in this together,
