Many of us have seen the desperation of local business and it truly breaks my heart. Imagine something you created, built, and invested years of hard work, slowly drifting away. My heart goes out all our local business and I created this article of some local business you can help out during this time.
Here's just a few of my favorite places. Please consider supporting these local treasures, whether it's by purchasing goods and services, tipping, purchasing gift cards for later use, sharing their business through social media or volunteering. Most if not all, are extremely accommodating during this time.
Birney’s Snack Shop - They are offering free Sack Lunches for ANYONE needing a meal http://www.kake.com/story/41902405/wichita-business-offers-free-food-during-pandemic
Meddy's - Meddy's workers are donating time and money to make food for hungry school kids. They're helping our community. Let's help them too.
