Like many of you we were looking forward to our annual fundraiser - Faces of Gateway. This is where we share many stories of the individuals we support and services we offer. Unfortunately, we have decided we will cancel this year’s fundraiser due to the threat of Covid-19. We realize that there are too many unknowns right now for us to continue plans and promote this year’s fundraiser. This was a very difficult decision to make as this is our one fundraiser of the year. We appreciate your continued support now and in the future. We thank you for understanding and we want to assure you that the Faces of Gateway Fundraiser will be taking place in 2021. If you have purchased tickets or donated a prize please look for an email from us. ... See MoreSee Less
I agree that we do an essential service. My only question is what benefit is it to be labeled as such. The only benefit I can find is employer protection from collective worker action. I am unaware of any unions in this field that could accomplish that.
