MCC Small Business Recovery Grant Distribution: Sunshine Fruity Smoothie

Last week, MCC awarded a $500 grant to Sunshine Fruity Smoothie, located downtown at One State Plaza in lower Manhattan. Michelle has been in business for 7 years at the same location and Sandy caused her generator to die and she lost all her perishable fruits. Her business was closed for 10 days and even though she is bad in business, her customer base is not there due to continued closure of several downtown buildings that house thousands of employees.

Jennifer is using all her contacts to gain more exposure for her once thriving business and hopes that her clients come back soon. The grant money will be used towards the purchase of the new generator she was forced to purchase to continue her business.

Sunshine Fruity Smoothie now sandwiched between two enormous restoration trucks downtown.

We thank Constant Contact’s SaveLocal and Paypal for helping raise the funds. Please click here for more information about the 2012 MCC Small Business Recovery Fund.
