COVID-19 and SMALL BUSINESSES

With the current Covid-19 pandemic underway it has taken a toll on all businesses.  Unfortunately, the smaller businesses will be feeling the effect of this crisis much sooner.  Several of our local businesses have been making significant changes in an attempt to stay afloat.  They have ALWAYS been there whenever we needed them to donate to various organizations, including the GBBPA!!  It is now our turn to help them!  We would like to encourage everyone to support these businesses and please shop locally. 

Several of our members fall into the category of “small business.”  Below are a few links that may be helpful to you or someone you know during this COVID-19 pandemic.

THANK YOU TO ALL OUR BUSINESSES FOR EVERYTHING YOU ARE DOING FOR THIS COMMUNITY!!!!
