With that said, please know that our Pella and Knoxville Resource Centers are still holding appointments. Well Works continues to produce product for local manufacturers. The Well has implemented enhanced sanitation practices at our sites, and we will continue to keep those practices in place moving forward. The Well will also continue to follow all Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) recommendations as they pertain to the Well’s operations. Updates on Well Operations will continue to be provided as the situation around COVID-19 changes.

We regret to inform you that Transform, originally scheduled for May 14–16, 2020, will be postponed until further notice. While we do not have a date in mind at this time, we do know that after things begin to shift in regards to COVID-19, there will be incredible opportunities to serve our neighbors and communities.

One practical way we can support our communities is to offer up prayer as the situation unfolds. We pray for the leaders in our communities, county, state, and nation as they process and make decisions around the virus. We pray for discernment in our own lives in how we process the situation. We pray for mercy for those affected. And, we offer praise to a Father who is so much bigger than the circumstances of our days. We’re so thankful for all you do to support the Well.
