Season’s Greetings from Kymera

The holiday season is once again upon us, and things sure have changed from just a year ago. We’ve travelled uncharted territories along with many other businesses and are so grateful to have been able to help our clients weather the storm.

From the Kymera family to yours, we wish you a joyous holiday and hope that you have many happy and peaceful moments celebrating with the ones you love. Hopefully, it will be a bright spot in what has been a difficult year for many.

Our hearts are with the families enduring the most devastating consequences from the pandemic and the businesses still trying to find their footing. We also extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those serving on the front lines of the pandemic — healthcare workers, police, firefighters, EMTs, teachers, grocery clerks, bus drivers and everyone else who continues to do their important work despite the risks.

Many non-profit organizations also face challenges this year. If you can, please remember them as you plan your holiday giving. We have the privilege of partnering with a number of fantastic nonprofits. And if you’ll indulge us, we’d like to give them a shoutout because they do such great work — and can use all the help they can get.
