I hope that you are all able to find someplace cool. I just wanted to send some updates/reminders:
Thank you to all of you who have come by to pick up the PPE for your members. We have been able to donate tens of thousands of items to local businesses. If you have members who missed the first application, we have opened it up for a few more days for masks and face shields. Please note that this offer is for small businesses only (20 employees or fewer). Application is due by the end of the week. If you were not able to pick up the items from the original application, please get in touch with me and we will make the arrangements.
We have teamed up with RXR to connect your members with skilled volunteers to help with the reopening and recovery process. Whether the need is for marketing, design, HR, accounting, banking, career advice, website design etc, you can be matched with a professional who can help. The service s FREE and open to all, so please share this link: http://westchestercatalyst-volunteer.com/
As the situation continues to evolve, it seems like there is no end to what business owners need to know, have to learn and have to incorporate into their daily routine. Please be sure to check our Events page for webinars that could help answer questions and provide guidance: https://westchestercatalyst.com/events/ And while you are there, please sign up for our newsletter (scroll all the way down the page). If there is a webinar you would like to see or help set up, let me know.
Thank you to all who submitted applications for the Community Table Partnership. The applications were inspired and will help many restaurants and vulnerable community members. We are in the process of reviewing and submitting them for approval. Stay tuned!
