5BStrong is an effort to promote donating "found money". The effort is asking those who do not the need the stimulus check to consider donating to a local charity and/or supporting an affected business. Helping those in need, and supporting local businesses that have been affected will have a profound positive impact on people's lives, our community, and the local economy. Please help us spread the message by using the hashtag #5bStrong.
