"We are thrilled to be officially launching the 365 Small Business Circle across northern B.C. With this initiative, we are answering the call for opportunities for small and medium businesses to be able to give back in a very meaningful way in their communities," United Way of Northern BC executive director Trista Spencer said in a press release. "We are so grateful to our amazing (Small Business Circle) partners in each community – The Oakroom Grill in Prince George as our first-ever... member, and SJA Promotions in Fort St. John as our second member leading the way for the northeast region of northern B.C."

The Oakroom Grill will host an open house on Thursday from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. for entrepreneurs looking to find out more about the program. To RSVP via Facebook, go online to https://www.facebook.com/events/2577754219000349/.

"As we welcome members to the circle, we will continue to expand the benefits and develop new opportunities to make this a meaningful connection for the collective," Spencer said in a press release. "We'd love to see people at one of our launch events and look forward to sharing this initiative across the region."
