COVID-19 Community Efforts
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all, but we are greatly inspired by the selfless efforts of healthcare providers, businesses employees and other essential workers getting us through this challenge. We are particularly moved by the countless teachers who have shown unwavering commitment to educating their students, even from miles away. Since many kids lack computers or internet service, however, they risk missing out on learning opportunities. To help with this obstacle, shortly after schools began closing their doors and shifting to remote learning, Envela designed and custom-minted 10 oz silver bars, the proceeds of which were donated to local schools. "We're pleased to play a part in the heartening, collective effort to meet the challenges posed by coronavirus," added Loftus.
