Supporting Our Small Businesses

This week we celebrate the many small businesses that call the Tenth District home. They play an important role in our communities, serving and employing our families, friends, and neighbors across western North Carolina. The devastating impact the coronavirus has had here at home means that now, more than ever, our local businesses need our support. Here are some tips on how you can celebrate Small Business Week 2020 by giving back and supporting small businesses during these challenging times.
