New supports help local businesses adapt


--------- SCRIPT --------- 

Reporter Script:

From physical distancing to financial challenges, we’re all feeling the strain of living through a pandemic.

For small and medium sized businesses, it’s meant lost revenue, layoffs and even closures.

As of March 2020, these businesses employed more than 70 percent of private sector workers, so they’ll play a crucial role in getting people back to work, keeping communities vibrant and helping the economy get back on track.

Jeff Carney, President and CEO of IG Wealth Management, explains how his company is offering support.

Spokesperson Quote:

Business owners across the country need to know there is help available. Our Answering the Call program can help them navigate through these uncertain economic times. It offers free, no obligation financial guidance through one-on-ones with our advisors and through a series of easy to access webinars. It also provides tax and financial planning insights and information on new government initiatives.

Reporter Script:

Carney also notes that up to five hundred thousand dollars will be donated to local businesses and communities across the country.
