Dozens of small businesses in Northeastern Pennsylvania are joining forces this week. It's all in the name of giving back to two area animal rescues including It's Ruff Without A Roof in the Union Dale area of Susquehanna County.
Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey visited the rescue in the northern tier on Tuesday to spotlight the upcoming event known as Networking For A Cause.
The group Valley Business To Business is behind the 2nd Annual Networking For A Cause on Thursday.
The organization is made up various mom and pop shops. The owners are focused on looking out for each other and offering referrals to its members.
Thursday's event is a chance for people to get to know and learn more about the small businesses in their own backyard.
Plus, take in a comedy show at the same venue to support the animal rescues.
