REBUILDING KENOSHA WISCONSIN UPTOWN AREA

KENOSHA, WI & ITS SMALL BUSINESSES HAS JUST EXPERIENCED A GREAT AMOUNT OF DESTRUCTION AS A RESULT OF RIOTS BC OF THE ATTEMPTED MURDER OF JACOB BLAKE WHO WAS SHOT 7 TIMES BY POLICE. THIS GOFUNDME IS PARTICULARLY FOCUSED ON LOCALLY OWNED BUSINESSES IN THE UPTOWN AREA & THE BLACK/POC OWNED BUSINESS SUCH AS THE MEXICAN OWNED GROCERY STORES/TACO SHOPS (estrella supermarket/uptown restaurant), & THE GOOD TASTE. OUR MAIN PRIORITY IS CONNECTING THESE PEOPLE WITH FOOD AS THEY ARE ALREADY IN A FOOD DESERT & THE GROCERY STORES THAT WERE THERE ARE CLOSED. SOME OF THESE BUSINESSES WERE SET ON FIRE & THEIR BUILDINGS ARE NO LONG WE STANDING WHILE OTHERS CAN STILL BE REBUILT/HELPED TO BE FUNDED AS TO HELP RECOVER ALL STOLEN/DESTROYED PROPERTY. DEPENDING ON WHAT THE CITY IS PLANNING TO DO WITH THAT BUILDING WILL DETERMINE WHAT WE DO MOVING FORWARD. AS WE SAID PRIORITY #1 IS CONNECTING THIS COMMUNITY WITH FOOD. PLEASE HELP US REBUILD OUR CITY. THANK YOU. UPDATE - WE HAVE BEEN IN COMMUNICATION WITH THE GROCERY STORE & ARE BUILDING A PLAN TO MOVE FORWARD. FUNDS WILL BE HELD IN A SEPARATE BANK ACCOUNT UNTIL WE MAKE A DECISION.
