Support Local Businesses
There are many ways we can continue to support businesses in our communities that are struggling because of COVID-19. Whether that be promoting a friend’s business, placing online order for goods, or ordering takeout through a contact-less delivery or curbside pickup, anything helps.
Many local Chinese businesses have experienced a disproportionate decrease in business during this time due to the stigma surrounding the Chinese community and COVID-19.
