“Act as if what you do makes a difference, because it does.”
The team at EANE is often amazed by the things that our members make or the services that they provide to their customers on a typical day. As we all know, these days are anything but typical. We are dealing with an invisible enemy that has turned our economy upside down and has threatened so much of what we value the most – family & friend gatherings, school and work commitments and the health and wellness we cherish.
However, in these dark times, there are shining beacons of hope and grace that amaze us and remind us that kindness, ingenuity and good will help us persevere and thrive.
