Funding Circle

In 2020, it’s more important than ever to support locally-owned businesses through the holiday season. Many organizations are offering socially-distanced ways to connect to local makers and business owners so you can cross items off of your holiday shopping list. Whether you explore a shopping event with your mask on, pick up a curbside order, buy online, or purchase a gift card, local businesses  and restaurants need and want your business this year.


Business, community and economic development leaders from across the region united today to launch the #TriadTogether Challenge, urging friends and neighbors to spend more where it impacts more—in small businesses and restaurants in our community.
