COVID-19, a special thanks from TBBCF
We’re all in this together
The Terri Brodeur Breast Cancer Foundation is able to support cancer research with the generous assistance of the community. Over the years, we have counted on many businesses offering all sorts of help, from monetary donations to in-kind services.
Today, as we face the reality of limited shopping and closed restaurants, we can still support the sponsors and businesses that have supported us.
For example, The Shack Restaurants in East Lyme, Groton and Waterford are offering take-out with curbside pick-up. Package stores are allowed to operate, and Grand Wine & Spirits, another of our ardent supporters, has five locations open.
We’ve compiled a resource list of the companies, businesses and organizations that have generously helped us in the past and have provided information about their status.
We also belong to five Chambers of Commerce – in Norwich, Westerly and along the shoreline. Each chamber is providing COVID-19 updates, blogs and other detailed information about its members.
Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut has prepared a comprehensive guide for members and the community on COVID-19 updates and resources. www.chamberect.com
