Helping Our Small Business Community
Small businesses are the heart of every community. Imagine your town or city without your favorite restuarant, gift shop, bar, spa, nursery, dentist, landscaper, etc. It would not be the same place.
According to research from Funding Circle, 52% of small businesses contribute to charity and 90% of those dollars go to support local charities.
Are We Taking a Test?
Let’s talk about the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Are you feeling anxious and restless from staying home and the need to isolate? Do you feel lonely? Do you miss your friends, co-workers, family, and your social circle? Do you feel depressed? Do you feel grief and loss from losing your daily routine? Are you worried about or have you lost your job? Do you miss celebrating Passover or Easter with your spiritual family? Are you an essential worker and undergoing risk and danger from being exposed to the virus?
That Dread You Feel isn’t COVID-19
There’s a hum of fear deep in your mind. Maybe you blame it on the relentless COVID-19 news coverage. The gap between ratings-pumping hysteria and the White House’s “nothing to see here” script doesn’t make you feel confident that the greatest nation has a handle on this pandemic. Compulsively checking the local tally of new COVID-19 cases every single day probably doesn’t make you feel calmer, either. Meanwhile, parades of faceless people in masks everywhere remind you of some apocalyptic movies.
What Happens After a Stroke
Almost 800,000 Americans suffer a stroke each year. Approximately two-thirds of them survive and need rehabilitation. Rehabilitation plays a vital role in helping stroke victims regain their ability to take care of themselves and achieve the best possible quality of life.
