Looking to Help?

My Way Leases has always seen itself as part of its communities. It was this time last year we were cooking out and hanging with all of you at our customer appreciation parties. Unfortunately this year due to Covid-19 we have had to postpone any gathering like that for the safety of our communities. However, even though our interactions our limited we believe this is when our communities need each other the most. Families, friends, small businesses and neighbors all are working hard to get through these times. Back in March we started a canned food drive that was postponed because of stores having to close and keeping contact to a minimum. We then posted an email/blog on how to donate during these times and we had great involvement and feedback. Now we want to focus on how and where you can volunteer in our communities. A lot of us, due to work or social distancing, are finding we have a little bit more time on our hands. I just want to highlight some of the great places in our communities that one can volunteer at and really make a difference.
