TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.

Hearth and Soul continues their mission of connecting the community.

Now re-opened, they're back hosting in-store events but are still being very cautious of social distancing and sanitation procedures.

They also have a non-profit partnership program. Each month they feature a different community partner to whom they will donate the net profits of candle sales.

This month, the Kearney Center is the recipient.

"We also host an event for the organization, and then spread the good word about what they're doing, and what they're staff is dedicated to," said Susie Transou, the founder and CEO of Hearth and Soul. "There are so many good stories and so many amazing organizations to support. So that's really our primary focus for our community giving."

Hearth and Soul also connects the community with in-store events.

On Saturday, they are hosting a book release and signing for Tallahassee's own Jay Revell and his new book, "The Nine Virtues of Golf."

The event is at 2 p.m. at their location at 1410 Market Street.
