Director, Local First

The fabric of every community is stitched together by the people who show up, everyday. Around each corner live our friends, the storefronts, and the past times we cherish. Our neighbors are our teachers and those who coach our lives. Our friends help keep our lights on, and they help put food on the table that we all share. We take our time browsing neighborhood shelves and providing for each other. And we clean up and care for our doorsteps when each day ends. We do this together. It's the foundation of community. And as this crisis tears through our hometowns, dismantling our Main Street economies, and leaving our friends and our neighbors facing unprecedented challenges, we need each other.
