What we're doing to support you during COVID-19
Dear Guidefitter Community -
In a time of uncertainty like this, it’s important for us to come together - as a network, as a community, as neighbors. First and foremost, I hope that you, your family, and friends are well. The global crisis that we’re facing is affecting everyone on all levels: personally, professionally, economically, and emotionally. Please know that you are not alone.
We know that many of you are small business owners and are doing your best to navigate the government aid packages that are currently being offered in an effort to relieve the financial stress that this global pandemic has inflicted on almost every industry. As a small business owner myself, I know how challenging that can be when the guidelines, rules, application processes, requirements, benefits, and offerings are constantly changing.
"It is our duty to support the people who have helped us get to where we are today - all of you."
Here at Guidefitter, we are working hard to ensure our community and our business partners have the resources they need to make it through this disastrous time. It is our duty to support the people who have helped us get to where we are today - all of you. Over the next several weeks, we will be posting information on the Guidefitter website, doing our best to aggregate the most up to date, relevant, helpful, and clear information we can regarding COVID-19 and the guiding/outfitting industry. You can find those resources here.
Some of it may be clear outlines of complex application processes and government programs. Some of it may simply be links to great resources we have stumbled upon. Either way, we would love for you to stay engaged - let us know what we’re doing well and where we should focus our time & efforts.
We are here for you in this time of need. Please let us know what we can do to support.
Founder & CEO, Guidefitter
