Pepper Center for Public Service Pandemic Report 2020 – May 2022
You may think that a global pandemic that sent everyone home for nearly two years would shutter an organization whose members, because of their age, were at higher risk from COVID-19, and who, because most are retired, had no financial incentive to continue working. But exactly the opposite happened at the Pepper Center for Public Service. With a huge assist from Zoom, the Pepper Center grew in size, projects, and the number of people we served. Equally important, we reinforced the bonds among our Fellows, and revealed the strength and the importance of the organization to the Fellows and those with whom we work.
