To band together and show the power of community, empowering local businesses to keep their doors open in the face of adversity.
Let’s face it: the only way through this is together. The spread of COVID-19 and the subsequent restrictions put on businesses to observe social distancing is forcing many local venues to close for an unknowable amount of time.
Give Have Need was born from a simple question, “How can we help?”
In light of the necessity to close down shop for the time being, local businesses in Chenango County are having to sacrifice every day cash-flow that can often times be make-or-break in rural settings. It is also the case that many of these businesses are currently not set up for online sales of merchandise or gift cards.
Enter Give Have Need. Improve Norwich Now (a certified 501c3 community organization) and Metis Consulting Group have partnered together to establish a simple way for local businesses to sell gift cards online during this difficult time of reduced, or totally non-existent, business. To learn more about how this process works for businesses, view our application page. To see how this works for community members to support their local businesses, start shopping now.
