Help Rebuild LuvHandles 308 east 47th

After being impacted from Covid in March my business was failing , however due to the high demand for prom and graduation assistance I was able to stay do curbside pick up or delivery THEN On May 31st my store was BURNT DOWN ! Mid 2018,I started building it from scratch, installing the walls, floors ,paint & much more ,my store was beautiful! I grew up in on the low end (Bronzeville) and my business is the only black owned store on my block. For years, I've put a lot into my community. I've always given back!  I have done Thanksgiving ,Christmas ,Back 2 School giveaways for YEARS in my community & in front of my store.  My store is the only place in my community that you can get custom tees, balloons and more. I also hired 2 GREAT employees that also live in the neighborhood. I can understand that people are angry but I never thought I would lose my whole store from violence. Although I am heartbroken I don't want to give up on my store! I plan to rebuild! Please help anyway you can it all helps!
