Safe at Home for the Holidays

Photo Contest

The holidays are traditionally a time when we gather together with family and friends, and share memories, laughter and—of course—food. But, because of the ongoing pandemic, things are much different this year. In order to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community, gathering with people who live outside our home is not permitted*—but that doesn’t mean our holiday celebrations have to be any less joyful.

There are plenty of safe alternatives to celebrate the holidays with our loved ones this year and keep each other healthy.

Enter to Win
Now’s your chance to share your holiday photos and show us how you’re celebrating the holidays safely. Are you hosting a virtual ugly sweater party on Zoom?
