History has shown us that in times of struggle and uncertainty, generosity is able to thrive. Amidst harrowing reports of the pandemic and its impact there are also reports of communities all around the globe coming together to support one another to do good.
Not only do small businesses need our support during this time, but so do small non-profits. We, like many others are in need of financial support after having to cancel our fundraising event. This is one reason why we are participating in this year's Idaho Gives campaign as well as #GIVING TUESDAY'S Day of Unity. We are inviting those who are able, to join us by either creating a fundraiser on your Facebook page or donating to campaigns already created on our behalf.
Together we will get through this while doing even more good!
