Welcome to the 4th video in the Small Business Series. Savannah joins Rob to talk about her non-profit business Lagniappe For Laura, which is a Christmas tree ornament business that produces custom, hand-painted ornaments from branches of fallen trees that came down during Hurricane Laura in August of 2020.

Her business generated over $1400 in sales and this was then donated to families in need over the holiday period.
