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.

Red Hills Landworks is staying safe and giving back to the community at the same time with land clearing and tree removal in the Big Bend area.

Red Hills Landworks is currently offering a 15 percent discount to first responders, healthcare workers, teachers and active-duty military.

Reed Brown, the president of Red Hills Landworks understands what those on the frontlines are going through during this time.

"It's just something that we've been wanting to do, giving back to the community, especially with the unemployment rates being sky high right now, and coming up on hurricane season," Brown said. "Lots of people are needing to have trees removed and stuff like that. It's just a way that we can give back and not have to break the bank to actually bring some joy into their lives and help them out."

Brown was a Leon County deputy prior to starting his business and his wife is a local nurse practitioner, so he says they love giving back to the community.

"You have to take extra precautions, but it's not just her. Its everybody that she works with, everybody in the healthcare field in general, law enforcement, all these people that are on the front lines, they're having to look out for everybody else and their family at the same time, so it's a juggling act."

Brown believes they've given the 15 percent discount to about 20 people so far.

Red Hills Landworks will be running this campaign through the entirety of hurricane season.
