Sherman Phoenix launches fundraising campaign to support tenants during COVID-19 closure
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- There are many businesses and people feeling the pain of closing their doors during the coronavirus outbreak.
One of them was just getting started serving the community.
Sherman Phoenix has 27 small businesses underneath its roof, formed after the unrest at Sherman Park.
Many are just a year old. Most are trying to switch gears.
They are also looking for help to keep the project going.
"They're trying to figure out new, innovative ways, and so we are creating an online platform -- Sherman Phoenix online, to continue to provide content to help some of them provide tools, said Clyde Anderson. "They are all experts in their area. Just different things we want to provide to stay relevant, stay out there."
Rent will not be collected for the businesses in April.
