Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month: Support your local, Latinx-owned businesses!
It’s Hispanic Heritage Month!
At Fly Together Fitness, we recognize and celebrate the heritage, culture, and contributions of Hispanic and Latin Americans in the United States. This month, we’re placing a special focus on our local Somerville Hispanic and Latinx owned businesses. To celebrate, we compiled a list of some great organizations to support now and throughout the year. We hope this list will inspire you to learn more about Hispanic heritage and support your local small businesses!
