15 Apr Giving Community Support During Coronavirus
The current Coronavirus pandemic has proven that this is nothing that anyone could have ever predicted or prepared for. We certainly hope that you and your family are staying healthy and safe, and in some ways, are enjoying the opportunity to spend more time together.
There is no better time than ever for all of us to band together and support one another. And while this may seem challenging, given the circumstances, there are still ways that you can support your local community. We recognize that many are feeling the financial strain of the Coronavirus, but here are some ways that you can help locally!
Shop Local Online
We are all spending more time in our homes than ever before, so consider shopping locally online for decor, textiles, and home accents. Staged Dwellings has a variety of adorable options that would be perfect for your own home or a gift too! https://www.stageddwellings.com/
Order Takeout from a Local Restaurant
This pandemic has heavily impacted restaurants. But we can certainly continue to support them, just in a different way!
West End in Marion offers takeout for breakfast and lunch, so the next time you’re feeling famished, consider ordering one of their amazing breakfast burritos, house-made soups, or other diner specials that change daily. Order online here.
Another fantastic option is Villas Patio for carry-out! Known for their margaritas, you can now order your curbside pick-up online at https://villaspatiomarion.com/. And yes, this includes to-go margaritas too!
Get Flowers Delivered
Flowers have a way of cheering people up in a downtime, so consider supporting a local business by having flowers delivered from Roots in Bloom. Whether you need an arrangement for your own home, or you are looking to spread some happiness to a friend or family member, Roots in Bloom offers a variety of unique bouquets and creations. They also offer delivery! Visit them online at www.rootsmarion.com.
Taco Tuesday at Local Pour
Here’s another idea for supporting a local restaurant: consider getting takeout for Taco Tuesday from Local Pour! They have put together a really cool taco package that includes 4OG tacos, four pork belly tacos, four beef tacos, and seasoned tots. You can feed the whole family with all of that food! And you can get it with or without a can of margaritas that serves four. To order, give them a call at (319) 364-4042.
