Reason number 432,000 I love living in Southeastern Minnesota. When something bad happens, like the coronavirus spread causing "shelter in place" type rules, someone, somewhere in this area, will find a way to help.

Thousands have stepped up. One those those thousands are gearing their efforts toward small businesses in the area that are or will be hit hard by the lack of patronage.

United We Stand Six Feet Apart is what's on the t-shirts, and according to their website, localroch.support, all the money raised will go in a grant fund to help small businesses stay afloat until we can all go out and eat, shop, etc.

The site also has links for restaurants that deliver or will do curb-site pick up.

All in all, I'm impressed.
