Mangan Holcomb Partners/Team SI and the Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau have launched a statewide, one-stop resource that provides a comprehensive, reliable list of information on local businesses, restaurants, services, and other essential information for Arkansans called UpliftArkansas.com.

The web site is a community-wide hub of information that businesses and nonprofits can use to update consumers and donors with their availability, and the public can get updates on their favorite stores and charities. Users can quickly and easily claim existing listings or create new listings to keep communities informed about the efforts of local organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

UpliftArkansas.com is organized in several categories including:

  • Eating local
  • Shopping local
  • Groceries
  • Health and wellness
  • Charities
  • Jobs, including temporary, part-time and remote job openings

“In these unprecedented and challenging times, LRCVB is doing everything we can to support our community businesses. There’s never been a better time for cooperation and strategic thinking,” said Gretchen Hall, president and CEO of LRCVB. “We’ve seen the people in our community come together in inspiring ways to help each other. Uplift Arkansas is a strategic and practical way to share community resources and pull together.”

“The local business and nonprofit communities make up the heart of our state,” said Sharon Tallach Vogelpohl, principal and president of MHP/SI. “We are proud to do what we can as an agency to support these partners.”

UpLiftArkansas.com is a free website dedicated to uplifting local businesses and nonprofits. The groups said no profits are being made, no ads are being sold and no premier listings are being promoted.
