Recognizing Resilience

We're so inspired by the innovative approaches local small businesses are taking to continue serving our community. We're proud to recognize and support just a few of our region’s adaptive small businesses. We’re incredibly grateful to live and work in a region so supportive of its local economy and the entrepreneurs at the heart of it. Across Western North Carolina, we’re seeing small businesses step up to face the challenges arising from the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. They’re adapting – they’re finding creative and innovative ways to continue supporting our community.
