I am having my company manage life under quarantine by giving back. I own a dealership group and our service and parts departments are considered essential services. We have maintained full employment so that our employees’ minds are at ease regarding their ability to support their families. We are also giving back by helping those in the community that need it the most. A few weeks ago, we gave more than $45,000 to Camp Rising Sun, a camp for kids with cancer. They have pivoted their mission and are now providing PPE and other items to children suffering from cancer at various cancer hospitals. URI is always close to my heart, so I also donated to the URI Students First Fund. We need to keep those in need in our minds during this time, since, COVID-19 has significantly reduced the money they are raising. But the need is more than ever.
