The soft drink giant Coca-Cola chipped in Friday to help in the Hurricane Harvey recovery process by making a donation to help small businesses in the affected areas get back on their feet.

The company made a $20,000 donation to Lift Fund, a nonprofit group that helps small business owners get the loans they need to make their businesses grow.
