      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:

        The Thornton Burgess Green Briar Nature Center & Jam Kitchen, like many non-profits and businesses, is struggling at this time. Our usual revenue stream has become a “trickle” and will not cover all necessary operational costs. We are asking for your support to make a small donation to help us continue with the care of our animals. Although any donation amount will make a difference, we are asking everyone to consider “Giving Twenty in 2020.” As a thank you for your donation of $20 or more, we will send you two guest passes to the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.To donate please visit http://www.thorntonburgess.org/Our-Animals-Need-Your-Help
