Businesses Team-Up & Donate to Nonprofits in Need 

The COVID-19 crisis has hit many small businesses in the pocket, and many are scrambling to make it through this unheralded time of recent history.  Businesses may be suffering, but it seems that small non-profits, particularly those who assist the less fortunate, are more seriously suffering.

Recently, the DECO Coatings company, along with the businesses On Top Roofing, SouthHaus Group and USA Up Star, collectively made a donation to the local food bank and humane society totaling $10,000.00.  The local food bank took the lion’s share of the donation totaling $7,000.00, while the humane society’s donation was $3,000.00.

The three businesses selected were not picked at random.  All three of the businesses are the children of the owners of DECO Coatings.  DECO Coatings owners Janet and Kirby South instilled strong convictions of helping and assisting others in times of great need.

Daughter Elisabeth South is the owner of SouthHaus Group, a full-service digital marketing agency.  They do websites, SEO, blogs, website content and a host of other services designed to help businesses successfully market themselves on the Internet.

Elisabeth South donated $2,500.00 in a personal act.  The values her parents instilled in her at an early age helped in the decision.  “Service to mankind and the community is a core value of my family and by proxy, all of the businesses my siblings and I own.  This gesture at a time of great need is just another example of how the South family has always given in times of need and also in times of prosperity.  This virus is absolute proof on how quickly situations can change,” said South.

The South family of businesses hopes this donation will spur other, successful small businesses in the area to follow suit and do the same.
