Now that we're no longer allowed access to local bars and restaurants, thousands of people who work in the hospitality and service industry are going to suffer. This along with school closings is set to cost the U.S. economy $51 billion a month. That includes the cost of parents missing work, reducing the labor force and other losses. 

It's unbelievable; which is why we want to help. 

If you or someone you know owns a small business that's being impacted by the coronavirus, we want to give you a shout out on the air.  All of us here at the Wolf are with you, that's why we're a PACK, and we want to help by giving your business a shout out on the air.
