Grant boosts LBA's Café y Pan Dulce
Salem Health's Community Investment Grant awarded the Latino Business Alliance a $2,900 grant to support Café y Pan Dulce (Coffee and Sweetbread), its free, monthly networking series.
LBA's mission is to strengthen the community by providing educational opportunities for both Latino and non-Latino business owners, as well as professionals seeking to develop diverse intercultural relationships. LBA will use the grant to establish and promote a virtual platform to continue to provide necessary resources and networking opportunities to the small business community in a safe and easily accessible format.
"We are grateful for this grant award to help increase our reach into the communities we serve," LBA President Jose Gonzalez said. "A portion of this grant will fund video conferencing equipment to record presentations and seminars at network events, enabling LBA to share our knowledge resources with a larger audience."
Through its Community Investment Grant, Salem Health aims to fortify evolving community-identified needs by supporting initiatives that improve health of the citizens in Marion and Polk counties.
