BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)– Mayor Byron Brown and Bills Cornerback Josh Norman are teaming up to help support local small businesses.
Brown announced the new initiative Buffalo Business Blitz Tuesday. With $25,000 of his own money, Josh Norman is providing grants of up to $2,500 each to small businesses impacted by COVID-19 restrictions this holiday season.
“I’ve been a lot of places in my lifetime, and Buffalo is one of those cities where you instantly
feel at home. Witnessing how Buffalonians support each other makes me want to do as much as I can for this city. Small businesses are the heartbeat of this place. Unique shops, great food, and awesome service mean so much more when you know you are supporting your neighbors and friends,” Norman said.
“I didn’t want to cut a check and walk away. I wanted to do something that would make a difference for the small business owners who are hurting the most right now. I’m calling on local business leaders and philanthropists to add to our donation so we can support as many small businesses as possible.”
For information on how you can contribute or to register your business, visit www.starz24.org. All donations must be received by December 26.
