Hear from a few of the winners:

“A big ‘Thank you’ from our small team, as your help is greatly appreciated, and will bring value directly back to the community,” said the owner of Skyway Villa Mobile Home & RV Park. They’ll use their winnings to help clear fallen trees and invest in critical electrical equipment.

“This grant will allow us to pay off a small portion of our start-up debt,” said the owner of Madd Natters Donuts, “And allows us to upgrade some equipment.”

Lian’s Nails wants to hire at least two more full-time manicurists and purchase commercial property on the Ridge. The financial help will enable them to “secure the property and purchase the appropriate equipment for additional staff.”

And over at Hudson’s Appliance, they “plan to use this grant for either service tools that will better equip our employees for their jobs in the field, or we plan to put it towards a vehicle wrap to help us better advertise.”
