We Buy Black and SheaMoisture have teamed up to bring the culture the Black Business Relief Fund. After reviewing 3588 applications carefully, we have settled on 20 awardees, each who’ve been awarded a $5,000 grant. The third business is Ella’s Beauty Mart, an excellent business that is totally worthy of this honor.
Ella’s Beauty Mart is a family owned and operated beauty supply store located on the westside of Atlanta. The store has been open for three years and up until the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been steady growth. They sell an array of products from many different brands for beauty care. As a family business, Ella’s Beauty Mart has managed to create an inviting and hassle-free environment, where customers are welcomed, shop freely and ask advice on products. The business is also unique in its passionate commitment to give back to the community, on a continuous basis.
Ella’s Community Outreach is the community service arm of Ella’s Beauty Mart. Their mission is to support underserved communities in the metro Atlanta area by providing food and personal care items for local shelters, the homeless and low income families. The company is also planning to host a back to school event for the children in their community. All of these charitable aims, however, are threatened by the state’s shelter in place order. With the ongoing impacts of COVID-19, Ella’s Beauty Mart faces an uncertain future.
Timothy Moore Jr. is the owner of Ella’s Beauty Mart and he is passionate about serving his community. That’s why he is especially grateful for this $5,000 grant from We Buy Black and SheaMoisture. Based on the company’s past performance, all of it is definitely going right back into the community.
