MacArthur Boulevard members, friends, and neighbors,
This is an unprecedented time in our community’s history. We want you to know that the MacArthur Boulevard Association is here to support you. If you or someone you know needs assistance, please reach out to us directly and we will assist in identifying resources to support your needs. If you would like to directly support your neighbors in need, the Community Foundation for the Land of Lincoln and United Way of Central Illinois have joined together to create the COVID-19 Response Fund to deploy resources to community-based organizations at the front lines of a coronavirus spread in Illinois’ greater capital region.
As measure to help flatten the curve and for the safety of our members and community, we will be cancelling our April membership meeting.
The MacArthur Boulevard Association is working in tandem with other business organizations in Sangamon County, from DCEO to Local First, to provide resources that help all of our businesses make it through this COVID-19 shutdown.
We’re would like to share a new website that will help consumers find out the status of their favorite local businesses and their services in one, easily searchable, website. We will all market this website as the one-stop source for business information here in Sangamon County.
You simply create a free account to share information about your modified operations and provide updates as your operations change and eventually go back to normal. We hope to create a seamless process that serves as a single location for information about local businesses. You will never be spammed from this effort.
The website is SpringfieldZoom.com. Just click on “Register My Business” to get started. We want to thank Springfield businesses, and MacArthur Boulevard Association friends, GoWeb1 and AlertsMadeEasy.com, who had the idea and built it in two days. They are donating this effort for the entire business community in Sangamon County as a free tool to help businesses and organizations quickly communicate their operational status to the public.
Additionally, if you use Facebook to promote your business, please tag us in any of your updates or announcements and we will share with our audience as well.
Please let us know if you have any questions. We are a tough bunch and we have always come together to support one another. We will get through this and we are here for you.
Believe in the Boulevard,
MacArthur Boulevard Association Board of Directors
