Be Essential Rebuild

Be Essential is a family owned and operated business that started over a decade ago.  They strive to better the community and those around them.  Each year Be Essential raises thousands of dollars for local non-profit foundations as well as local police departments.  On May 27th their new store, due to open June 13th, was destroyed by a flood and is now deemed a "collapse zone".  All merchandise, supplies and renovations were lost and destroyed.  The losses that are not covered by insurance are well over $20,000.   As the community and Stacey (the owner) stand up against this unbearable loss we hope to show Stacey, her children and the community at large that we all still believe in local, family owned business!  Help us give Be Essential a chance to rebuild! #ECstrong  www.beblends.com
