A Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce campaign to highlight the contributions being made in the region during the COVID-19 pandemic has drawn attention to the generous spirit for which the Greater Lansing region has always been known. Dozens of organizations and their employees have rallied in recent weeks to support those in need during the COVID-19 crisis. LRCC started a #ShareTheGood campaign and has been using its social media platforms to highlight many of those outstanding efforts.
“Our business community has always demonstrated a tremendous generosity for residents in need and our network of nonprofits,” said Tim Daman, president and CEO, Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC). “That is continuing to be on display during the COVID-19 crisis, from the largest businesses to the smallest. We’re seeing everybody stepping up and making a difference.”
The COVID-19 crisis has placed enormous stress on our healthcare system and challenging circumstances for citizens most in need, including those with underlying health issues, the elderly and low-income citizens.
Always a region rich in compassion and filled with a spirit of helping those who need it the most, Greater Lansing has responded to COVID-19 with an outpouring of support in every conceivable manner, including donations of food, money, medical supplies and volunteer hours.
Many businesses have seen their operations curtailed or shutdown during the pandemic and many employees have been furloughed during this time. Despite the challenges, many of those same businesses and employees are setting aside their own difficulties to rise up an lend a hand to others in need in the community.
