The safety and comfort of clients, volunteers, and donors, is very important to us. With Covid-19 continuing to rank high on Indiana's survey-based list of mental and physical health concerns, hand and surface spray disinfectants available. Masks are optional but we have no problem wearing one on request and ask that unvaccinated persons wear masks as a social courtesy.
