Nothing Bundt Cakes in Hickory recently joined the Catawba County United Way's new initiative – Small Businesses Love Big.
This will be an opportunity for small companies in Catawba County (50 employees or less) to invest back into their communities.
Each participating company contributes $365 a year, which will be used to fund a second Catawba County United Way allocation process focused on supporting programs of local small and start-up non-profits.
Representatives of the businesses will meet to review the grant applications and decide what programs to fund.
“We know that our small businesses understand and see the needs in our community from a unique perspective and giving them the opportunity to invest in their community not only makes sense but honors the contributions of both small business and non-profits,” Catawba County United Way Executive Director Mark Bumgarner said.
