In addition to extreme health challenges, the COVID-19 crisis has had a devastating impact on our local businesses, arts organizations and not for profits. Luckily, there are many ways we can continue to support our local economy.
- Purchase a gift card from your favorite restaurant, store or service provider, to use later for yourself, or to give to a friend.
- Buy tickets to future performances and make donations to your favorite arts organizations and not for profits;
- Order food for pick-up or have food delivered to your home—many establishments have special menus. You can even get wine and cocktails delivered!
