    There is no doubt the next few weeks are going to be one of the most challenging times we’ve ever faced in America. But time and time again, we’ve shown that we have what it takes to face any challenge with grit and determination to come out on top. And that’s exactly what will happen here.

    It’s going to be a rough road for everyone in the next few weeks and especially for small businesses. Let's share our stories and information and together we can come through this stronger then before.

  • How is This Pandemic Affecting You and Your Business?

    Please take our survey and tell us what health precautions you're taking at your business:

    "It is very bad here we're having to lay off workers and some had to take salary cuts. We need help with money to keep our employees working. If we don't get assistance soon we may not be able to open back up. We are a nonprofit therapeutic service for individuals with disabilities in this community. We rely on public support. Right now we have no income. We would love some advocacy on our behalf."

    "As an event rental company, most all of our events have been or will be cancelled in the upcoming months. Yesterday we had $18,000 in cancellations of group events that have been cancelled. Since January and February are our slow months, our company is bankrupt at this point. We have been in this business for 30 years and have no other means of income." Sun Country Amusements
