A new website recently launched by the FHCCA–also known as Fountain Hills Civic and Cultural Association–is reformatting to provide resources for residents during the COVID-19 outbreak. The site offers online resources and links to support local restaurants and businesses, Facebook sites, area recreation, and virtual entertainment. It also lists ways residents can help each other.
“In times like these, it’s good to know you live in a supportive community like Fountain Hills. Without question, we are stronger when we work together,” says Debbie Clason, Marketing Manager for the new site. “And, thanks to the conveniences of the internet and social media, we can reach out to those who need our assistance quickly and effectively.”
FountainHillsLive.com was originally developed to provide an online community calendar for area businesses and organizations. When COVID-19 started to affect local activities and the online calendar became filled with cancellations, FHCCA leadership jumped into action.
“When local event cancellations started to occur and restaurants, in particular, were so strongly affected, we became concerned about the business owners and employees, and decided to do what we can to help,” says Dori Wittrig, President of FHCCA. “Since FountainHillsLive.com was designed solely to be a tool for the residents, we realized we could provide needed information resources in a one-stop-shop format.”
The site features local restaurants and revised services and offerings. There are also links to health and government-related organizations, a list of things for kids to do while families are self-isolating and, for those in a position to support local needs, a list of ways to contribute to others who are in need.
