As a small business owner and longtime entrepreneur, Frank Monte knows how impactful even a modest enterprise can be when it comes to making a difference in the community. As organizations that connect with local customers and the community on a daily basis, small businesses are in a unique position to drive and support local charities, events and efforts that cultivate community strength, connection and improvement in a very real way.
As Frank Monte knows, there are numerous ways, other than donating money directly, that businesses can take to support the local community. Some of these include:
Promoting Local Business
Working with other local businesses to support and market, well, local businesses, is a great way to cultivate community connection with local business owners, as well as to connect with other leaders of the community.
Sponsoring Local Youth Organizations
