COVID-19 Resources

How You can Help

Locally owned small businesses are the backbone of the nation’s economy and you can help them to keep their doors open. You can help support your local small businesses who may be experiencing slow traffic, low sales, and even the prospect of having to close their doors. Spread the word about your favorite small business on social media. Buy from local, independently-owned businesses. Write a review for them on their Facebook Fan Page, Yelp or Google. Buy gifts cards to use in the future. Contribute and do what you can to support them!
