Giving Thanks


Published on November 24, 2020

Thanksgiving is a holiday of the heart, through the lens of gratitude. The year of COVID-19 has made that message shine brighter than any other year, if nothing else.

As we round the bend to sweep away 2020, we’ve been reminded of many things to be thankful for, and discovered new ones along the way. Now is the perfect time to bring those bright spots to mind, as our long weekend of thanks approaches.

TEN THINGS WE ARE THANKFUL FOR IN 2020

  1. Doctors, nurses and technicians who never stop fighting for us

  2. Grocery store workers constantly cleaning and restocking

  3. Educators who whipped new curriculums into action for millions of students

  4. Essential workers everywhere, who kept working through it all (most especially, our Oliver colleagues)

  5. Technology that keeps us connected and working when needed

  6. Delivery drivers of all kinds

  7. The levity of Zoom blunders

  8. Cleaning wipes and hand sanitizer

  9. Toilet paper

  10. Our health & safety

For everyone who has stood by our side in the fight against COVID-19, we are thankful for your partnership this year.
