As the pandemic and all its uncertainties stick around, North Carolina small business owners and nonprofits continue looking out for each other.
• Asheville Strong provides gift card links to local businesses, along with a list of graphic designers volunteering help for businesses new to the digital world.
• Orange County Arts Commission keeps a list of community sites and fundraisers geared toward local artists, and offers grants as funds/donations allow.
• Food Bank of Central & Eastern NC has a quick-search tool to find nearby pantries, along with “virtual food carts” donors can fill up with as much as they wish to give.
