The word essential means "absolutely necessary; extremely important." At Tucoemas, we think it means to show up, to get things done, to make sure the front-liners can do their job, to take care of our members and our community in a time of crisis. It might be the local restaurateur serving meals to the healthcare workers (Pita Kabob, El Tarasco), the church providing childcare for law enforcement (NCVisalia), or the teller teaching a senior member how to use the ATM (you know who you are). It means being the person behind the person, supporting, scrambling, re-thinking and responding. It's all those men and women in our community that truly make us a #community. They usually don't get paid a lot, they usually don't have big pensions or stock options, but they have the grit and the desire to make sure that we get the cash, the food or the care that we all need.
Over the next few weeks, we want to know who the #essential folks are that make your life work, that have helped you get done what you need to get done, that put a smile on your face and help you find toilet paper. We are a better community because of #essential people, let's let them know we care!
