With the recent local impact of the coronavirus in Northwest Arkansas, one local business is doing its part to help soften the blow for those in our community who just may need just a little help pushing through the tough times. ‘B-Unlimited’ has designed ‘NWA Strong’ t-shirts. The company is donating 20% of sales from the shirts to the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank in order to directly support the community, including families and children affected by school closings and lost meals. The company’s CEO Ben Clark says this is a great way to help our fellow neighbors. For more information and to order your shirt, click here.
