This week, I have elected to continue promoting the efforts of youth is our community, through shopping.
That’s right, many upcoming holidays, parties, vacations and events during this month lend themselves to gift giving.
There is a strategy in place that says if you spend 66 of your holiday dollars locally, it will benefit the local economy and small businesses immensely.
I’m going to take that idea one step further and ask if you can support the business of a local youth, too.
The Small Business Development Center works annually to help young entrepreneurs start their own businesses and get their name out in public.
Perhaps you would like to buy a hand made cross, a hand knitted scarf or portraits from a young photographer? If so, have I got a plan for you.
Local youth like Leia Roach, Elise Koskelo, Derek Selvage, Esperanza Tapia and more have taken the time and weathered the process to become Youth Business Grant recipients.
Need something cool for the teen in your life? Roach, of Mush Crafts, is happy to get crafty and provide you with a cool gift, at a hot price. Your tech-savvy skills should drive you to etsy.com/shop/mushcrafts.
