Small Businesses Can Save Our Community
Small businesses provide character and individuality to a community. It is neighbors helping neighbors ― friends helping friends. However, small businesses are more than that. They benefit their local communities in many concrete, quantifiable ways. When the pandemic caused by Covid-19 fell on our community like an avalanche Blue in Green Center chose to help out the most vulnerable sector – patients and medical personnel. Our team realized that there was an immediate need for crucially important, life-saving medical and personal protective equipment (PPE). Together with Meduni UMSI, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide support in healthcare, we were able to embrace the opportunity and distribute over $50,000 worth of the necessary medical equipment and PPE from hospital beds to ventilators, masks, and gloves, etc., among our state and local government agencies, hospitals and clinics and other nonprofit organizations. We strive to help people who form our community. Because we care. Because this is what we are. Be safe.Learn more.
