CommCap’s annual tour gave board members, partners and prospective funders a chance to see, touch and even taste the impact that CommCap makes in the Greater Bridgeport area. On October 22, a dozen of CommCap’s constituents boarded a bus, provided by the Greater Bridgeport Transit Authority, and set out to visit eight of CommCap’s active borrowers. From the pumpkin light Halloween products of Howler Brands to the state-of-the-art exhibits created by Innovative Display, the diverse businesses demonstrated CommCap’s broad reach and results.
The tour began with bagels and coffee at the newly expanded Rainy Faye Bookstore, and concluded with Cajun pizzas at Two Boots of Bridgeport, where Bridgeport Mayor Finch shared about CommCap’s important role in supporting small business and housing and economic developments in the City.“I always find it so fascinating to learn about interesting businesses right here in our backyard and today certainly enlightened me to some I was not aware of. I commend you for the good work that Community Capital Fund does and the invaluable role you play…and I know the businesses that you help are so thankful to have you as a resource.”
