Our Community: Mississippi Building

We all know how the financial crisis is affecting us individually—layoffs, home foreclosures, and the loss of retirement savings. But how does the financial crisis affect area businesses? For a recent Living St. Louis segment producer Anne-Marie Berger shared the story of Paul Buzzetta, a local restaurant owner whose hopes of opening a new Sicilian restaurant have been put on hold because of the financial crisis.

Everyone’s being affected by the crisis, and we’re all in this together—individuals, families, and communities. If you’re having financial troubles, don’t be afraid to seek help—free, confidential resources are available. Call the United Way’s helpline at 1-800-427-4626 or visit their website, www.211missouri.org.
