Uplift Arkansas launches to bolster businesses, nonprofit efforts in Arkansas

Posted on March 26, 2020

In this time of social distancing, many of the small businesses and nonprofits that make up the heart of our communities are being severely impacted. Small businesses, restaurants, entertainment destinations and nonprofits are doing what they can to serve our communities and uplift our spirits while also doing what they can to stay afloat and provide employment to thousands of Arkansans. These businesses and services are the reason we at the LRCVB are BIG on Little Rock.

In partnership with Mangan Holcomb Partners/Team SI (MHP/SI), we've created a resource that can help Arkansas at-large. A solution that can provide businesses with much needed support, and also provide consumers with a way to patronize the organizations that make Little Rock a destination in the region for arts, culture, food, shopping, entertainment and more.

Our teammates have been hard at work creating, a free, one-stop hub that provides a comprehensive, reliable list of information for all Arkansans. Here, organizations across the state can keep the community updated on their availability by claiming or adding a business listing or job opening. The site also empowers consumers to do their part by buying goods and services, taking online courses or museum tours, or simply providing support by interacting virtually with one another.

We can all do our part to lift each other up during this unprecedented time. How can you help? You can help by getting the word out! Visit, add a listing and share it with your friends.

Pull out your phone or computer to:

●      Submit, edit or claim a listing of your own.

●      Add listings for relevant businesses and nonprofits you love!

●      Search for and add the Uplift “frame” to your Facebook profile photo: Click edit on your Facebook profile photo and click Add Frame and search for “Uplift Arkansas” it will show up as an option to add this frame to your profile!

●      Share on social media! Utilize the attached “partner toolkit” to share how you are joining the cause to support your community!

These are uncertain times, but what is certain is how Arkansans support each other. Thank you for joining us as we band together and lift each other up.
