A message from resident, Sheryl Manfreda, on the creation of the Business Aid: Berkeley Heights fund:
Local businesses are the heart and soul of our community and they are facing a terrible crisis.
Social distancing and government-mandated shutdowns have already had a catastrophic impact on local businesses. Business owners are struggling to pay their rent, payroll, utilities and taxes.
As a 25 year resident of Berkeley Heights, I am thankful and proud to live in a town that prides itself on delivering community support! Our local small businesses need our help now more than ever. By seeking the help of Berkeley Heights Business & Civic to create this fund, I hope to ensure that these businesses will make a triumphant return when the government mandated restrictions are lifted. Please join me in donating whatever you can to help Berkeley Heights small businesses and their employees. Please spread the word by sharing this fundraiser with your networks.
When united, we can make all the difference! #weareinthistogether.
