We know how important it is to support our small businesses in East Hawai`i.

More and more small businesses are being affected. To continue supporting them, here's a list of local businesses you can support from home. Have others to add to the list? Let us know!

1. Hilo Palace Theatre

Even though the Hilo Palace Theatre is closed, you can still watch movies and documentaries from the comfort of your own home. A portion of online ticket sales goes directly to the theatre! 

2. Discount Fabric Warehouse

Join Discount Fabric Warehouse in their community service project to sew face masks at home. Different organizations have different needs, so check out their blog for video tutorials on how you can help. 

3. Fitness Instructors & Trainers

There's a bunch of Zumba, Piyo, Turbbo Kickboxing, and other instructors offering online classes. Support them and burn some calories at the same time! 

4. Cupcakes BOOM!

You can order sweet treats from Cupcakes BOOM! and have them delivered to your door! Visit Express Waiters and choose from a variety of other restaurants.

5. ʻImiloa Astronomy Center

ʻImiloa has online resources for astronomy crafts and activities you can do at home. Since this is a free service it doesn't financially support the center, but it helps to further their mission of public education. Visit ʻ[email protected] Resources for Backyard Explorers today!
