As we come into a different phase of Covid-19, it’s up to each of us to begin moving toward a recovery phase. Seal Beach is leading the way with its new program, “Hold Fast Seal Beach.” We speak with Deb Machen about the ways you can support local businesses, such as with Seal Beach senior care, restaurants, shops, salons, and more.

What Is Hold Fast Seal Beach?

Covid-19 has taken a toll on US cities, especially with businesses and the economy. Seal Beach has taken a stand to let everyone know that precautions are in place and customers can support Seal Beach businesses once again.

Deb Machen explains the program and the introduction of “Hold Fast Seal Beach.” The city has a desire to support businesses and launched a local campaign to highlight what businesses need.

Deb stated that Hold Fast was inspired because of the recognition of how much businesses have suffered and what it would require to pivot the circumstances. The nautical term, Hold Fast, was used to bear down and fight through the storm.

Hold Fast. Stay True. You will not only survive the storm but will also be stronger by making it through.

How Can You Participate?

From September 1st to the 15th, all you need to do is the following:

  • Visit the business
  • Snap a photo
  • Upload the photo to social media (Facebook or Instagram)
  • Add in the tag: #HoldFastSB

Whoever wins the contest will receive $50 to a local business.

The winner will be announced on Facebook live at the local police station at 11 AM. Follow and like the Seal Beach City to see who wins!

Whenever you are ready, Seal Beach businesses are ready for you. Shop local and support businesses that are starting to recover from Covid-19.
