The global pandemic, COVID-19, has taken over life as we know it. It’s definitely a strange time to be alive as this is truly is a first for everyone. So while this is going on, and the world is under quarantine, we want to share some of our thoughts and what’s keeping us going.
We know that with everything going on it can be easy to feel overwhelmed. With this event impacting so many people—BLOC included—we have been spending a lot of time reflecting on the situation, the importance of community, and what we can do to remain positive and optimistic.
Like many other small businesses, BLOC is also suffering hardships. Which keeps us coming back to how important our North County San Diego community is and what things will look like when this is all over. We are determined and hopeful, for not only BLOC to return, but for our small business partners to as well.
With that, BLOC took a portion of our membership income from April and redistributed it amongst some of our key community partners that we and our members know and love. We feel strongly that people will be remembered for how they handled this unprecedented time and we want to be remembered as a company, that even when faced with severe economic challenges, made efforts to lift up others.
Here are some of the businesses we helped support with the help of our community:
