  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    The CGSC Foundation transitioned as many of its programs as possible to virtual attendance (or added a virtual attendance option) in response to U.S. Army mandated safety protocols during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CGSC Foundation noticed a need for increased family programs that allowed for social distancing, and the CGSC Foundation sought out and partnered with community groups to support those affected by the pandemic with COVID-safe family activities.
