Our local businesses and non-profits are grappling with the effects of this pandemic. How can we help them get through this to the other side?

By buying local right here in Jackson County, Michigan! Learn More.

The Opportunity

Your favorite small businesses are with you through many of life’s moments, usually serving as the backdrop for those big moments or those everyday moments in between. Florists, coffee shops, meat markets, restaurants. Car detailing, carpet cleaning, lawn care and maintenance. You know that old saying “It takes a village…” Well, if you think about it, that village is a part of so much of your everyday life.

This is a topsy-turvy season we are in. Our routines, work, social calendars, and more are being impacted hard right now. And this includes small businesses.

Right now, we have a great opportunity to support the small businesses and non-profits in our community. The ones that have been with us for birthdays, anniversaries, new homes, new jobs, Tuesday coffee dates, and Friday yoga.

This campaign is brought to you by the generous support of our partners.

Pre-buying from our local businesses (such as gift cards) or donating to local charities is probably the most immediate thing we can do to help.

But maybe buying a gift card isn’t possible right now. You can still support your favorite local small business in lots of ways. You can share about them on social media, leave a review, order take out. Check out this graphic for even more ideas.
