*I got the idea to create this post from my friend Ashley’s post : Support Sacramento Area Businesses from Home . Sacramento locals, be sure to head over there for a list of Sacramento small businesses. *
By now we’re all feeling the effects of the COVID 19 outbreak. Even if you’re not sick with it, or know somebody who is, chances are your child’s school, or your workplace have been shut down. If not that, you’re most likely one of the brave humans on the frontlines in hospitals, grocery stores, or driving trucks.
I’ll take it a step further and say- if not that, you’ve most likely had a hard time finding even the basic things you need on your grocery list, or your business is still operating because your family has no other choice right now. My point is, this is a global issue, history in the making, and not a single one of us has been spared.
Perhaps one of the most heartbreaking things I’ve seen in my small town is the way this has affected our small businesses. I’m lucky enough to live in Auburn, California – endurance capital of the world, and I know that if we all pull together to support these small business during this trying time, we will, indeed, endure.
Below is a list of small businesses I’ve put together over the last few days. I put out a comment on our community Facebook group asking for any small businesses that have been (and will be) affected to chime in , and let us all know how we can help them through this. The response was overwhelming, and heartbreaking, and it’s taken me several day’s to put this post together.
Please know this post is truly a labor of love for my beautiful town. If there was ever a time to come together to support local business, it’s now. Additionally, if you’re in Auburn or the surrounding Placer County cities and would like to be added, please DM me on Instagram or email me through my contact page. Feel free to share this post so we can help as many people as we can. Thank you!
