Most businesses across the nation have been impacted by the pandemic in one way or another. Reopening presents its unique challenges by requiring firms to modify standard operations in order to protect workers and customers. This requires businesses to source equipment and supplies that may be unfamiliar to many firms and their suppliers. Business leaders are also asking questions like:
- What do I do next?
- When will things return to normal?
- Where do I find the necessary supplies and equipment to begin reopening?
These questions are the driving force behind our Small Business Recovery Program.
This new program is supported by the ReWire Group, Upstate New York Black Chamber of Commerce, Community Loan Fund, and the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce. Our Recovery Kits includes: face masks, gloves, hand and surface sanitizers as shown here by Dan Bullis, Co-owner of Saratoga CoWorks. Participants also have the ability to access to other offerings like: head coverings, body protection, signage, and customized risk analysis to name a few.
Since the program launched on June 10th, more than 80 small businesses across the Capital Region have taken advantage of the program . Lee Evans, President of the ReWire Group and supporter of our Small Business Recovery Kits, delivered one of the first Kits to Dan Bullis in Saratoga Springs last week.

Until next time…
