OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — As the Blackstone district in Omaha continues to help employees impacted by the coronavirus, one local business owner is selling t-shirts.

The owner of Zander Ink is selling the shirts for $10, with $7 going back towards those impacted. He says it's a way to keep his employees busy, and hopes this work will inspire others to give back.

"I wanted to show other businesses that you don't have to do this by yourself, you can lean on somebody else," said owner Alex Ahrenholtz. "It doesn't even have to be for shirts, it could be any local businesses, or any business, gang up with somebody and try and do something together where you both benefit from it."
