Support our small businesses
Take the pledge.
Remember all the businesses we've asked over the years to donate to our schools, clubs, organizations and charities?
We always call on our small businesses when we need their time, money and donations in our community. Now, they need us. Just because we can't dine in or shop in the store, doesn't mean we can't help. Contact your favorite small business and ask them what they need. They are our friends and neighbors, and it's time to rally around them.
