      What happens when a group of retailers, from across a region, collaborate to lift each other up after the economic fallout of COVID-19? A lift up local initiative is born. South Coast Almanac is collaborating with a dozen of our region's small businesses who are impacted by COVID-19 and creating surprise boxes filled with items from their establishments. Think of these as speciality grab bags for grown-ups (but in a box!)--a curated and themed assortment to bring joy to each recipient and financial support to our small businesses after a rough spring.

      A special thank you to First Citizens' Federal Credit Union for the assist. And without further ado, an introduction to our retailers:
