"It's a way for people to really easily show these business owners who are a big fabric of our community and who are struggling during these changing times, that we really do support them," said Tucker.
For example, if you want food delivered, need a groomer for your pet or in desperate need of household supplies, you can go to Curbsidestl.com, surf through the website and place your order.
"A majority of the businesses on the website so far are restaurants, but we have a variety of shops and retailers. We want to make sure our family, friends and fellow small businesses are supported during these challenging times, " added Elizabeth Tucker.
