Solomon Valley Community Foundation in partnership with the Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce and Solomon Valley Economic Development
The #MitchellCountyStrong Program was developed with the sole purpose of supporting those in our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program enables customers to put dollars into the hands of their favorite businesses while also providing grocery assistance to those affected by recent layoffs and/or reduction in pay.

The program is really quite simple. Buy 1, Give 1. When you purchase a gift card through the website (mitchellcountystrong) your purchase will be matched with a grocery store gift card. The idea is to get money flowing back into local businesses who may be experiencing a dramatic reduction in revenues, while at the same time providing grocery assistance to families who have seen a reduction in wages.

*Match is limited up to $500 to any 1 business in any 1 purchase*

Ellsworth County Economic DevelopmentOtherOther
We've done some of all....
(1)Our first effort was a COVID-19 Relief Emergency Loan Fund from our revolving loan fund. Up to $5,000 loans, 1% interest, 4 month deferred payment, 24 month term. Those funds have been extinguished.
(2) We implemented the idea and technology for a grocery store Click List, and hope others in restaurants and other industries will use it as a model for how technology can be used to create efficiencies and income streams.
(3) We are offering 2 month deferred payments for all of our current revolving loan clients.
(4) We offered media grants of $300 each for businesses first-some, first serve, as a way for them to spend more funds on advertising, banners, social media, online services, etc. and we would help cover those costs. We served 15 businesses and those funds have been extinguished.
(5) We are hosting weekly Zoom calls (started March 13) for businesses, public health officials, leaders, community to share in information, ideas, frustrations, etc. Average attendance has been 25-40/week and it seems to be a good platform for collaboration and breaking down the silos within the community.
(6) We are offering a 30-on-30 class on April 30 "30 Ways to Adapt Your Business". This Zoom meeting will be to offer suggestions, brainstorm, and also share ways businesses have changed their traditional business model to protect revenue streams.
(7) We are coordinating a Virtual Job Fair via Zoom. This might be a total fail, but when I looked at unemployment claims in the queue for our county and the contiguous county and also heard from our employers that we have job openings, it seemed like a logical way to connect people with opportunity in an efficient manner.
(8) We created a brand new website dedicated to small businesses resources www.ellsworthstrong.com. Why? I was told that my eco devo website (www.ellsworthcountyeconomicdevelopment.com) is too hard to remember, so I thought a more simple domain might drive more people to the site.
(9) Feed Our Heroes Program - Community members can nominate a "local hero" of their choice, and donations are being collected to deliver meals to them on Fridays.
