A CORONAVIRUS STATEMENT FROM OUR CEO
MARCH 13, 2020: “Out of an abundance of caution and in the interest of social responsibility, Community Shares of Greater Cincinnati staff and volunteers will be exercising recommended social distancing over coming weeks. This means our office hours will be flexible as staff will telecommute some days, upcoming events have been cancelled (including our Happy Hour for a Cause fundraiser March 20 at Below Zero Lounge and the Dinner with the League event in our offices on April 2), and any meetings in the near future will be held virtually rather than in-person. We encourage everyone to take calm, common-sense action to limit interaction with other individuals over coming weeks to help limit the spread of the contagion.”
T. Duane Gordon, Chief Executive Officer
