Briesha & Orlando
The world of COVID-19 is a difficult one for small businesses to navigate.
Orlando, owner of Point A to Point B Transit, can attest to that.
“Before COVID-19 happened, everybody was going where they wanted to go, but now, they only go where they need to go. So, my business has been slowing down a whole lot,” he said.
Orlando and Briesha, have both been unemployed due to the pandemic. With food running low in their home, they visited Good Neighbor Pantry in Sikeston.
“Things have been a lot harder at home so we came out here to get some help and support,” Orlando said.
They were thankful for what they received and the donors and volunteers who make it possible.
“It’s really important because you don’t know who’s going without. Kids are out of school and sometimes, that’s how kids eat every day. They go to school and look forward to that so [food pantries] are very helpful,” Briesha said.
“I feel like it helps a lot too because a lot of people have been losing their jobs, and it’s been a lot tougher out here for people. When the community comes together like this, it helps us stay focused and keep a positive mindset,” Orlando said.
