All aspects of 2020 have undoubtedly been different and challenging. Placing an emphasis on the health of those around us became a primary focus and continues to be so, causing changes to traditions and disruptions to annual plans in order to protect those we care about.

At JAS, People have always made the difference and continue to do so. That is why in 2020 JAS made sure to take every precaution to keep our team and our customers safe, while still delivering good cheer. As we are living and learning to navigate this new era; JAS McAllen knew they had to maintain a safe social distance from the recipients of the annual JAS Calendar, but they still wanted to leave customers with a sense of how grateful JAS is to have them be with us for another year. Therefore JAS McAllen decided to make a caravan to deliver calendars in the parking lots of customers where possible.

There will be time to share again, meanwhile we continue to do business at a safe social distance and create new excitement in doing so.

Happy New Year 2021 from the JAS McAllen Team.
