How to Support Local Businesses

by | March 16, 2020 | Special News

While we are not encouraging people to be out and about where they don’t feel comfortable, life is still happening and there are business still running. Small, local business will be affected the hardest right now and many of them have adapted to meet current guidelines while still preserving their businesses and the livelihoods of owners and employees. San Antonio is known for its community support and while we wait for Fiesta to come next Fall, we can continue the sentiment and love of our community to the local businesses and nonprofits who need it most.
