2020 really took a toll on small businesses. Too many have had to close their doors. One way to give back in addition to shopping locally ourselves, is to choose local for your next fundraising event. The message of raising money for your cause while also supporting our community businesses will attract more supporters. Choosing a fundraising company with local products to offer, you are supporting local jobs, building pride within our community, putting faith where it belongs with local business owners and gaining knowledge of what and who is around you. It’s exciting to know what products are crated in our own communities and all the artists behind those products. That knowledge will be great to have even after your fundraising event is over, to continue supporting local.
