Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Scott Asner and Michael Gortenburg of Kansas City’s Eighteen Capital Group (18CG), are publicly applauding the invaluable service provided by essential and frontline workers everywhere.

Over the course of several months, Kansas City – and the nation at large – has weathered the storm of a novel coronavirus pandemic. Throughout this challenging time, every U.S. citizen has relied upon the essential services and unyielding courage of countless men and women working to make life possible and keep the most vulnerable protected.

These heroes are found in nearly every industry and sector, including:

  • Healthcare providers (including doctors, nurses, technicians, and EMS)
  • Hospital, medical facility and pharmacy workers (including administrative staff)
  • Law Enforcement and first responders (including volunteers)
  • Food and agriculture workers (including farmers, food transport and restaurant workers)
  • Public and community workers and volunteers
  • Construction and infrastructure workers
  • Energy sector workers
  • And more
