BYSJ has been in Westgate West since the beginning, and we’re grateful for the support of our landlord. When many businesses struggled and failed during Covid closures and capacity restrictions, they had our back. They recently forgave half of the past rent due, leaving $70,000 to pay off this year.
We also acquired an SBA (U.S. Small Business Administration) loan that helped fill in the financial gaps as we got back on our feet. It allowed us to stay the course and become more efficient in the process. Not a pretty time, but we are better for it!
Our members, too – many of you reading this, have lent a hand to support our vision, whether by maintaining memberships during uncertain times, lending or donating funds, or simply showing up through thick and thin – we’re forever thankful.
As BYSJ moves forward, we are ready to pay off lingering amounts and sustain our momentum.
