“We know this is very welcome news to all of us who understand we are an integral part of truly making a difference in the lives of many less fortunate in our community,” the Cheer Board said in a release.

The organization said it has implemented “extremely high” health and safety protocols to make sure it’s able to operate as the pandemic continues, and that volunteers are already committed to making sure things run smoothly.
