Grocery store employees. First responders. Child care workers. And many more people on the frontlines of the COVID-19 outbreak are keeping us safe and our region running. For many of these workers, known as ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed), being essential is nothing new. Despite living paycheck to paycheck, ALICE workers show up to their jobs to serve others. We've been responding to society's most pressing problems for more than 95 years, and we're up for the challenges of COVID-19. Still, the needs surrounding COVID-19's effect are great, and as we begin to shift to long-term recovery, we need you now more than ever.
