Jamie Jacobsen, owner of Fazoli’s, says small businesses are a lot like families. Their employees and customers are part of the community, so it’s important for them to help out local not for profit groups. “I would suggest doing some research, looking for an organization that really utilizes the resources in a proper way to support and to help elevate people out of poverty.” This is sponsored content.
- As a small business I feel it's very important to support not for profit organizations in the community. Because we are a part of the community. Our employees live in the community.
We're kind of a family being a small business. With that being said, we try to rally together as a family to support those who may be less fortunate or who may be going through a hard time or a rough patch in life. I think that's very important as a business to participate in that, to be a part of it.
Because, again, we're a part of the community and so are our people that we employ and see everyday. They're a lot like our family.
I would suggest doing some research. Look for an organization that really utilizes their resources in a proper way to support and to help elevate people out of poverty.
