We're calling all business professionals to join us on the front lines to serve.
While the COVID-19 pandemic poses an immediate threat to our health, it has the potential to decimate our small business community and impact our economy for many years to come. “Main Street” businesses in our local communities will be crippled and the capital-starved small businesses in our most resource-poor communities are facing the threat of extinction. Government relief efforts will not be enough to help many struggling business owners survive.
We are inviting companies to mobilize their team members in support of businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. While medical professionals are on the front lines saving lives, business professionals must join together to save our small businesses and pave the way for economic recovery.

While the commitment to support this movement is at the company level, your employees will use an online form to indicate the amount of time they will contribute individually. Whether they have two hours per month or two hours in total, their volunteer contribution will make a difference. We can even set up a customized page just for your team enrollment.
Participating employees will be assigned to projects.
We make our volunteer assignments based on the needs of the entrepreneur and the expertise and time commitment of each individual volunteer. Each volunteer is presented with the specifics of the volunteer opportunity and asked to accept before an introduction is made to the entrepreneur.
Small businesses need our help to survive.
