As all of us grapple with the reality of COVID-19, we wanted to let you know what we're doing to help keep our customers and community safer.
This crisis will likely force more people into a state of food insecurity. That's why we are doubling our donations to the hunger-relief organizations we already support, from now through at least June 1. If you have extra resources, please consider donating to a local food bank or Feeding America. If you are facing food insecurity, please don't hesitate to contact your local food bank for assistance.
We will continue to fulfill orders with the same careful attention to hygiene and cleanliness as usual. We have been isolated at home (with our home office) since March 13. Our delivery-service pickups have been happening in the mornings as opposed to the afternoons, so your order may not always go out the same day. Big thanks to our local postal carrier, who kindly picks up packages to get them to you.
Stuck at home with the kids?
Us, too! If you are looking for new books, toys, or activities to entertain your little ones, we urge you to shop with small, independent retailers (such as our wonderful stockists) instead of Amazon or big-box stores. Shop online or give them a call—they'll probably be happy to do mail order. "Spending small" can mean the difference between a small business staying afloat or closing its doors.
We're all in for a challenge unlike any other. If you can, please join us in staying home to protect the most vulnerable members of our communities—not to mention the health care workers, grocery store employees, delivery workers, and other people who are risking their own health for the greater good. We are all in this together, and together, we'll make it through.
