SRQ MEDIA's Mission—Live Local. Love Local.

When we come together as a communty, there is nothing we cannot achieve in the face of adversity. During these uncertain times, we look for ways to celebrate, support and share the love with local businesses who have each contributed to creating this special place that we call home. Together with the SRQ MEDIA Gives Back Foundation, our team at SRQ Media is launching the SRQLOVELOCAL initiative to encourage our readers to support our hometown spirit in small but important ways.

 

We'll be collecting menus and updates from local restaurants who are staying open and providing take-out, curbside service or delivery and posting them to this page. If you know a restaurant that is staying open to serve the community, let us know about them so we can add them to our page. In coming weeks, we will also be adding ways to engage with local performing arts organizations who are providing online and virtual opportunities to engage.

 

Send us photos of you staying calm and localing on at lovelocal@srqme.com and we'll post them to our social media and to a new "Stay Calm and Local On" online photo album which we'll share with the community in the tough days to come.

 

And sign up to receive the SRQ DAILY: Love Local e-newsletter to stay up to date on community happenings. Starting this coming week, we will also be capturing moments of incredible kindness and inspiration.

 

We are in this together.
