Amid a historic spike in COVID-19 cases in our community which has pushed regional healthcare resources to the limit, businesses across El Paso are doing their part and further modifying how they operate.
Now, officials with the Better Business Bureau Paso del Norte say they will highlight those businesses as part of its “Buy El Paso” campaign.
“Since March, hundreds of local businesses have put the safety of their customers and employees first and taken the City of El Paso’s Pledge to Safety. Many of those same businesses are now going even further to help protect El Pasoans during the critical two-week period which is ahead of us” said Marybeth Stevens, President of Better Business Bureau Paso del Norte. “We want those businesses to know that our entire community is behind them and that we appreciate the augmented steps they’re taking to keep us all safe.”
Program officials add that one way businesses are doing that is by participating in the BBB’s E-Commerce Technical Assistance Program which has helped dozens of local businesses improve their online offerings as a way to minimize face-to-face contact.
For more information on the campaign, including a list of participating local businesses, visit BuyEP.org.
For resources to help your business survive the COVID-19 pandemic including the latest state and local health orders and free grant programs, visit EPBusinessStrong.org.
If your business has taken the Pledge to Safety and is taking other steps over the next week weeks, tell us what you’re doing by sending an email to email@example.com. Your business could be featured in the Buy El Paso campaign.
Buy El Paso, El Paso Business Strong and the E-Commerce Technical Assistance Program are brought to you by BBB Paso del Norte using federal CARES Act funds allocated by the City of El Paso.
