Supporting Inter-Faith Food Shuttle

On Wednesday, March 24 we utilized the Raleigh Chamber and WCED network to help Inter-Faith Food Shuttle source a new “needs list” to support 7,500 deliveries of frozen meals/week to children in the region. WCED was able to source a pallet jack to help move pallets around the warehouse and aid in delivery.  Also posted a blog on how to help.

SBA Offers Disaster Assistance to the North Carolina Small Businesses Economically Impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is offering low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to small businesses in North Carolina that are suffering substantial economic loss as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Download the SBA press release (Spanish version) and EIDL Fact Sheet (Spanish version) that outline the details of the declaration received by North Carolina.
