We’re Giving Back to Small Businesses Affected by COVID-19

As an essential business in Harford County Maryland, we felt that we could not just sit back while our local small business community suffered. That is why we created the Small Business Recognition Program, an initiative where our solar clients can nominate a small business of their choice to receive a $1,000 donation from American Sentry Solar. Since the program has been introduced in early May, we have had over 20 small businesses nominated, and each one will be receiving a $1,000 check to help them come back from this crisis.

Check Out Our Small Business Recognition Program Recipients!

Hereford Bed & Biscuit – Hereford, MD

Tom at the Hereford Bed & Biscuit was our first recipient of our Small Business Recognition Program! Tom and his team were nominated by Pastor Fred and Debbie, two homeowners who had recently gone solar with us. Pastor Fred said that the Hereford Bed & Biscuit always took great care of their dog, Lola, and he couldn’t think of a more deserving business for the $1,000 donation!

El Pilar Restaurant – Pasadena, MD

El Pilar is a family-owned, authentic Mexican restaurant in Pasadena, Maryland, and their food is exceptional! This business has become a staple for Isaac and Michelle, two homeowners who recently moved to the area, so when they had the chance to nominate someone for our SBRP program the answer was clear! Eva, Pedro, and their family were extremely grateful for the donation, especially after enduring months of uncertainty during the COVID-19 crisis. The reveal was such a touching moment, and we’re glad to have caught it on camera!

Greene’s Family Butcher Shop – Kingsville, MD

Greene’s Family Butcher Shop is a staple for the Kingsville, MD community. Homeowners Mike and Nicole are regular customers at Greene’s Family Butcher Shop, and they saw firsthand all the good the owner John has done for the community. During the Stay-At-Home order John lowered his prices his customers, and he even donated goods in order to raise funds for local schools. Mike and Nicole felt that John’s business was more than deserving of this donation, and we have to agree!

Garrison Deli – New Castle, DE

Ricky, the owner of Garrison Deli in New Castle, was nominated for our $1,000 Small Business Recognition Program donation by homeowner Amrish! Amrish told us that while Garrison Deli just opened last year, it quickly became a favorite of his. Amrish decided to nominate Garrison Deli in order to support them during this difficult time, and business owner Ricky was more than grateful for this $1,000 donation!

Annie Mae’s Cafe – Capitol Heights, MD

For homeowner Shelley, Annie Mae’s Café has always served more than Authentic Mississippi Cuisine. They provided her with memories of her mother and grandmother, who showed their love through cooking, just like Mr. Anderson of Annie Mae’s Café strives to do everyday. Mr. Anderson was incredibly appreciative of this award, as he is in the process of transitioning his business from a food truck to a brick and mortar café! We could not think of a business owner more deserving, and we hope this $1,000 donation will aid him in his endeavors!

New Elizabeth AME Church – Newark, DE

Tropical Storm Isaiah couldn’t stop our Small Business Recognition Program from giving back to a deserving establishment! Reverend Karen Washington of the New Elizabeth AME Church in Newark was incredibly grateful for the $1,000 Small Business Donation from American Sentry Solar. This donation will help the church continue to adapt to the pandemic, as well as aid their efforts with their Sparrow Run Food Drive!
