As COVID-19 entered the Midwest region, area economic development and growth organization Elevate Rapid City saw an opportunity to help the business community in the Rapid City area stay alive. Giving restaurants and retailers the space to communicate their ever-changing hours and services, Elevate Rapid City created the Facebook group “Rapid City To Go” in March 2020. Now, two months later, the group actively supports hundreds of local businesses and has over 13,000 followers.
