BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Josh Norman is pretty busy this week getting ready for the Baltimore Ravens.

You know what else is busy? His initiative to help businesses struggling with COVID-19 and COVID-19 restrictions.

Buffalo Business Blitz just reached half a million dollars in donations. That's thanks to Rich Products. In honor of its 75th anniversary, it donated $75,000 to the cause.

"Rich Products literally started on the corner of West Ferry and Niagara Street 75 years ago as a small business, so this became a huge opportunity to support the ongoing effort that we've had on the West side and in Buffalo, generally," Jon Dandes, corporate vice president of government relations and special projects with Rich Products and Rich Family Foundation.

Erie County small businesses in need can apply for $2,500 awards, online.

Norman's goal for the business Blitz, raise an additional $500,000, to help even more small businesses.
