Passionate about WEV?

There are many ways to give!

During the pandemic, Lisa Gaede, the owner of the Carlyle Salon, decided she wanted to give back to other small business owners. She began a fundraising campaign, selling baseball caps with 25% of the proceeds going towards helping local businesses through WEV.


“WEV provided me and others the help and support we needed to start our businesses. It felt good to give back during COVID.”
