June 2020

Have you seen some of the sunsets recently? Absolutely gorgeous! And I LOVE hearing all of the birds singing. I read somewhere that when you are outside, listen for a bird and follow their song until you actually find the bird. I have been trying to do that and I have a friend that I always have to ask what kind of bird it is! Thanks Kim!!

FedEx is giving $1 million to small businesses

Small businesses strengthen the economy and make the world more vibrant, creating jobs, as well as unique products, services and spaces. Communities depend on small businesses, especially in these trying times.

Many small businesses are hurting right now. Whether you’re making the move to selling and shipping online or you’re ramping up your safety and cleanliness measures to keep customers and employees safe, you’re putting your all into not just surviving but becoming more creative and resilient than ever.

To honor that spirit, FedEx is committing to provide $1 million in grants for small businesses in the U.S. Each grant recipient will receive $5,000, plus a $500 credit from FedEx Office that can be used for printing banners, posters, floor graphics, custom branded boxes, and more.

NOACC members can apply starting May 25 at fedex.com/supportsmallgrants. But first, make sure you’re signed up for FedEx discounts through the NOACC Chamber Shipping Program.

If you’re not already taking advantage of this free benefit, enroll today
