A community event was held at the West St. Mary Civic Center on Friday to help local stores that have been closed because of the pandemic.

Vendors from the community set up tables and displays for customers to check out their products.

An organizer says this is just one way the community can come together during this difficult time.

"I want them to see that we as a community are promoting unity in our communities," explained LaDale Webster. "I want them to stay. I don't want us to be unified just today, my goal is for us to be unified forever."
