to go away. Dealing with a fire or flood or tornado was easier because the problem was immediate and all we had to do was react and it would be over. A pandemic is simply a different kind of situation. The impact on Crest and everyone who works here has been great. We have a plan on how we can deal with the situation as a company and that seems to be working well. Having health care staff on site has been a tremendous help and most have em- braced the many changes we have made despite the level of inconvenience that it has meant to everyone individu- ally. As with other disasters, this situation has brought out the best in this group of people who today call Crest Foods their work home. We couldn’t be prouder and more thankful that the spirit of those that embraced difficult situations over the years is still alive and well at Crest. Good things do come from bad situations and the fact that our jobs are in demand, we are thriving when so many others are suffering and we are all treating each other well in less than ideal conditions is a blessing. Hang in there...this too shall pass and someday soon we will look back on 2020 and feel good about how well we came out the other side. Unsung Heroes by Chris Reynolds, Mix A Supervisor An unsung hero is a person who has committed acts of self-sacrifice, yet is not celebrated or recognized. It is some one who sacrifices themselves for the good of others without recognition. As we watch the nightly news, and the never ending reports of the tragedies of the Corona Virus, there are usually glimmers of hope provided by the unsung heroes who are doing whatever they can to help our nation get through this pandemic. We see and hear stories of doctors, nurses, teachers, postal workers, truck drivers, police, fire fighters and EMTs, grocery clerks, utility workers, bus drivers, and many more people who are making severe sacrifices for the wellbeing of others. I am so very grateful for all of these people, and countless others, who have quietly done what they can to try and keep our lives manageable in these difficult times. While there have been no television film crews or news reporters here at Crest Foods that does not mean that our company is not full of unsung heroes. All of you, who come here to work every day, are making sacrifices for people you will never know. You are making a difference to thousands of our fellow Americans who will never know of your sacrifice and dedication. You should be proud of what you are accomplishing. Thousands of families, many who are struggling financially, have affordable food because of your dedication. Please be proud of what you are accomplishing. You are making a difference for good. You too are unsung heroes!
