Our Maplesville team wanted to thank and recognize local essential employees and businesses who continue to serve those in need. Guardian is still here to serve our members and communities, and we are thankful to serve alongside such great people and groups to meet community needs.
They wanted to do something special for those who do so much for their neighbors. They provided the Maplesville Pharmacy, Maplesville Supermarket, and the local Dollar General employees with lunch from local Ruffy’s to show them Guardian’s appreciation for their dedication to their communities. These local essential employees are integral to our communities having the supplies and support they need. They already work so hard for those they serve, and these times have pushed them even harder. We are thankful for everything they do for all of us, and for the opportunity to serve them in return.
The Maplesville Food Bank operates out of the Guardian branch, and they distribute boxes to upwards of 70 families every other week. With so many businesses closing their doors, those who depend on the food bank were worried they wouldn’t be open. Our team didn’t want to let down those who depend on them, and have since implemented procedures to safely distribute supplies. Team members have called regular food bank visitors to let them know they are still open and serving.
