Celebrating a good run in Chenango County

Give Have Need

March, 2020 was the start of a rough time for a lot of people, small businesses and family owned operations included. Give Have Need was a project whose vision was to see an alternative revenue stream made available to small business owners in Chenango County. It was run by Improve Norwich Now, developed by Metis Consulting Group, and helped generate thousands of dollars for local businesses via e-commerce gift card sales when their physical storefronts were temporarily closed.

Now that storefronts are once again open, Give Have Need sales and interactions have predictably decreased and we have decided to sunset this project; our original goal of providing a temporary relief for local businesses having been achieved. Thank you, Chenango County, for supporting your local businesses!
