Black-Owned Businesses to Support

The Congregational Church of Belmont, along with the United Church of Christ as a whole, is committed to standing against racism and injustice in America and around the world. Please see our previous post for further reading and resources, including donation links, for this cause. We are also gathering a list of black-owned businesses to promote and support. If you know of any local or online ones that we have not listed here, please leave us a comment or send us a message at office@ccbelmont.org.

Please note that not all businesses listed have been vetted by CCB. As always, please use caution and common sense when doing business online.
