Another great way to show your support for essential workers and give back to our local communities and put some lovely art in your yard = SoHy Co-op’s “Thank You” yard sign! This beautiful collaboration between SoHy Co-op and local artist Clara Cornelius produces a sign that celebrates Maryland flora and thanks for our essential workers all while raising funds for our community via the Hyattsville COVID-19 Pandemic Relief Fund.
The SoHy Co-op is encouraging small business lovers to support SoHy businesses by shopping small online on May 2. Small businesses make up the heart of the SoHy area and they are all being affected by the COVID pandemic. These businesses rely on support from local shoppers.
Many of us regularly patronize our amazing coffeeshops, bars, restaurants, tattoo salons and other businesses that have been ordered closed. Even as you practice social distancing, you can help support our local service industry staff. Consider sending a “tip” to your favorite bartender, barista, server, stylist, etc., via the SoHy Co-op’s Virtual Tip Jar. As of now, the list includes employees of Whistle Stop Studio, Streetcar 82 Brewing Co., Vigilante Coffee Co., Espaço Cultural Samba Trovão, Maryland Meadworks, Pizzeria Paradiso and Franklins Restaurant & Brewery. More to join, we’re sure!
