Small Business.  Big Impact.


Small businesses are the backbone of our local economy. Your business is rooted in our community – and if we want our community to thrive, we need everyone to play their part. As a small business owner, you are a part of peoples’ everyday lives. You can take action to make our community better for everyone – your customers, employees, and your own family.

Small Business Circle (SBC365)


Our small business partners play a significant role in helping us address the needs of our community. By joining forces with the local businesses at the heart of our community, we work together to create long-lasting positive change.
