All of the above stories are sponsored by Sam’s Club.

The Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) is one of the country’s largest social enterprises that helps bring greater economic opportunity to communities across America. Sam’s Club invested $1 million with LISC, which includes support for the LISC Rapid Relief and Resiliency Fund. The donated funds will provide technical assistance to help small businesses and organizations navigate the range of public and private financial assistance programs. LISC will also provide grants of up to $10,000, with particular emphasis on small businesses in historically underserved communities, especially those owned by women, minorities and veterans.
