Something really cool is happening THIS FRIDAY NIGHT (4-3-2020) from the Marion Cultural and Civic Center Facebook page! Marion United is a charitable organization formed to help the local business community in the Marion area. Jared Gravatt and Josh Benitone from Crown Brew Coffee Company will be hosting a LIVE telethon style event, to raise funds for members of the Marion business community affected by COVID-19. Here’s something from their official website…
“A CITY UNITED
In the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic, our city has found itself in an unprecedented economic crisis threatening the livelihood and future of so many locally owned businesses. In a time where so many are struggling, there is an amazing opportunity for the citizens, churches, businesses, and organizations to UNITE and help them through this. MARION UNITED is a collaborative effort to generate grants for local businesses affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
We need your help! Even a little bit can make a big difference! Despite great pain and tragedy, there is an opportunity to unite and endure this struggle together. If we do, our city will shine as a beacon of hope in the midst of economic disaster. When we look back on COVID-19, we will be remembered for how we came together with a solution to lift our community during a time of uncertainty. Now is our time to shine!”
