TEMPLE, TX — The City of Temple is encouraging residents to join the "Clap Because We Care" campaign to show support for essential workers during the COVID-19 crisis.

"We want to show support for all of the essential workers in our community from the dedicated healthcare workers, to the custodians, the retail workers, delivery truck drivers, and everyone in between," the post said.

At 7 p.m. each Tuesday, beginning April 7, residents are encouraged to step outside their homes and clap for one minute to thank the healthcare professionals, first responders, and all other essential workers.

The City of Temple says to show your support by using the hashtags #clapbecausewecare and #templestrong.
