Service didn’t stop at the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid because of the coronavirus. In fact, the ways in which staff are serving those in need has ramped up. Rather than shutting the doors due to the pandemic, the Center for Humanitarian Aid quickly adapted and continued to answer the call.
Each week the distributions are held, families line up in their cars and the assembly line begins. Every measure to protect both staff and those visiting the Center for Humanitarian Aid are taken – masks, gloves, families unload the carts into their own cars and social distancing.
While people are six feet apart, it is clear every staff member takes the time to see and welcome each family as they come through the drive-thru line – even if the smiles happen behind a mask and a wave across the street.
