We can all agree that the world we’re living in today is vastly different from the one we lived in last month. And, at this point, no one is sure what the next month (or the month after that) holds.
As a business resource and connection hub, we have members in nearly every industry which gives us insight into a huge cross section of businesses and the challenges they are facing right now.
We also understand that if you don’t own a business, you may not fully grasp that in addition to the concerns everyone has right now, your business owning friends are dealing with even more:
What Can You Do?
The best thing you can do is support small business.
You can use the MOB Directory, our directory of mom-owned businesses, if you don't know where to start. Nearly every service or item you need can be found in the directory (and lots of personal care items can be shipped to you directly). If you need a recommendation, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Choose a small business over a big box store where you can.
Find a local hardware store or nursery for home projects, buy from an independent book seller instead of Amazon, choose a locally-owned art store over other options, support a local clothing boutique, order your coffee beans from a local roaster or coffee shop.
These businesses need your support all the time, but especially now.
