No doubt, this virus thing has given each of us an underlying level of stress, whether we’re willing to admit it or not. But the question is, where do you find yourself today – waiting for it to change, or doing what you can to make a lasting difference for your loved ones, friends, co-workers, and community?

JPI Insurance Solutions feels a big responsibility to pay-it-forward in this time. We’ve helped organize various efforts to support local business owners, non-profits, and the people fighting on the front lines of this virus.

And we are so proud of our agents for their part in our efforts! During the month of April, they personally checked in on over 700 of our clients. And who knew we had a whole crew of sewing ninjas?! Together, they were able to source materials for, make, and donate over 250 hand-made masks to those on the front lines, including Kadlec & Tri-Cities Cancer Center!

We’ve continued to pay staff with ninja sewing skills to make masks as needed and have handed them out to our friends at local restaurants. In May, we plan to continue to support other businesses and nonprofits, have some fun, and in general try to get through these times as best we can.

So, our challenge to YOU is this… Be the leader with every person you can influence. Look for the helpers, be one of them, and make a positive impact whenever and however possible. As we get through these times, we will come out stronger and more resilient than ever before!
