Dear friends and colleagues,
As we enter the Thanksgiving holiday, each of us reflects on what we value and what we are thankful for. It’s safe to say that 2020 has been very difficult, but we still find ways to be thankful for so many things. Here at The Data Center, we are thankful for a New Orleans that continues to be both optimistic and fastidious, gracious and tenacious even through the toughest of times.
We are thankful for the frontline workers in the health care field that sacrifice for the sake of others.
We are thankful for everyone that follows the medical guidance on socially distancing and mask wearing. Your diligence helps to slow the spread of COVID-19 and saves lives.
We are thankful for the essential workers that continue to work and provide what is necessary during this pandemic.
We are thankful for all the funders and individuals who immediately stepped up to provide sustaining funds or volunteered their expertise.
We invite you to reflect on what you consider to be valuable and what you are thankful for, even during this most peculiar of Thanksgiving seasons.
Join the over 27 million donors who have given on #GivingTuesday. We would be grateful to add you to our list of donors helping to make The Data Center’s work possible. Please consider donating now in honor of the spirit of giving, and show what matters to you.
