PHILADELPHIA, July 2020
The unexpected COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the country, especially small business owners. We at one2one and our incredible Donors have worked to help many across the nation stay afloat during these difficult times. One program in particular has been especially impactful as of late. The Stay Strong Philly Program, launched by a Philly-based family foundation, is a Donor-customized effort to assist small business owners in greater Philadelphia who have been affected by COVID-19.
Over the past week or so, the Program has helped numerous small business owners by donating a total of $105,000 in grant money.
The family foundation worked closely with one2one to customize and power the Stay Strong Philly Program, providing much-needed COVID-related hardship support to 21 small business owners. As one grateful donee noted, “Your grant allows me to continue to positively affect so many lives without the worry of my personal circumstances–a priceless gift.” The generosity of our Donors enables us to help so many people, and we thank them for their kindness in a time where it is so vital.
“In times like these, you never really know what tomorrow will bring.”– another thankful donee
