Looking Forward to A Bright New Year

Dear CBT Members,

I want to take this final opportunity of 2020 to wish all of you good health and happiness in 2021.

I see important lights on the horizon: vaccines in early distribution, renewed hope for addressing inequalities and, last, but not least, a spirit of caring and community, a hallmark of CBT.

As we enter 2021, I have three requests of you:

First and foremost, please take time to care for yourself, families, and loved ones. This has been a challenging year for all, and it’s vital we take time to rest and rejuvenate.

Second, it’s important to remember the needs of our friends and neighbors. After a short break, well-deserved by our staff who are working diligently to overcome new challenges, we will continue collecting food for those who otherwise would go hungry.   We also planned many social action initiatives to help others.

Finally, where you see an opportunity for yourself, please stay connected to one another on a personal level. The threat of COVID is an oppressive reality. Working and staying at home easily leads to overload and stress, the extra caring for young and old consumes all free time, and the loneliness of single quarantining can be a heavy weight to bear. Please consider connecting with a fellow member via a card, a phone call, or with some sign of care, especially to somebody you know may be alone. Our support and encouragement of one another costs nothing, yet gives the best we have to share - the warmth of caring, and the knowledge that we belong.

If you haven’t heard it enough, thank you for being members. For non-members reading this, please consider joining. If you value what we provide, a donation of any amount will help us continue to do so.

Nancy and I extend our warmest wishes to each of you for a safe, peaceful, and healthy 2021. 

Be well and stay well,
