Things are changing rapidly every day during this ongoing outbreak, but the team at Quick Country 96.5 is right there with you-- and could help you out this spring.

It's amazing to me just how quickly our lives all changed and were upended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As recently as early March-- only a little over 6 weeks ago-- things were pretty much normal here in Minnesota.

Heck, my wife and I even took a trip down to New Orleans in late February where we took in the last day of Mardi Gras and enjoyed some great food and cocktails. Now, the Big Easy is one of the spots in the country where the coronavirus outbreak is the worst.

And our family, like many across southeast Minnesota, looks like it'll be affected by the pay cuts and furloughs coming to just about all employees at Mayo Clinic, where my wife works. And, even before that unheard-of announcement from Mayo Clinic leaders last week, both my wife and I were busy adjusting to the new 'normal' of working from home, like many others as well.

In fact, the entire team here at Quick Country has been pretty much able to work remotely for part, if not all, of the day. While I still head into the studio location downtown to broadcast the morning show, as soon as I'm off the air, I'm back at home working from my 'studio' downstairs.

So, if you've been affected by all these unexpected events-- and because we're all in the together-- we have a way to help out, whether you're furloughed from your job, are still heading in to work, or are working at home: It's the Quick Country 96.5 Stimulus Package, and it's your chance to win cash-- up to $10,000 dollars-- three times each weekday. Listen for those code words during our Quick Country Commercial-Free Hours at 9 am, noon and 4 pm.

Enter them on our Quick Country app and you could win cash, courtesy of All Craft Exteriors - Built On Trust. And, the Quick Country team got together-- virtually, from our home 'offices,' like many of us-- to record this commercial that explains things, as well. Check it out:
