QUINCY (WGEM) — While restaurants are struggling, one Quincy community member is taking to social media to raise support and awareness.

Jeremy Farlow has generated around 50,000 cumulative views on social media and has helped nearly 30 businesses in Quincy.

Farlow said he's doing all he can, but a community effort is what these businesses need.

"Some of them have told me that people have mentioned that they've seen my videos and that's why they've come on back in, but I mean that's just a drop in the bucket of what they need," Farlow said. "They're still running 30 or 40-percent and they're no where near 100 percent."

Farlow said to check out his previous Facebook live videos for guidance if you want to help but don't know where to start.
