Our June 2020 Uncommon Acts of Kindness was a special series, honoring the memory of George Floyd. We gathered nominations over nine days and selected nine winners to receive gift packages featuring products from local minority-owned businesses and artists.
We are so excited to highlight these business owners and the passionate work they do so that you, too, can support these incredible entrepreneurs!
