This month last year, we launched the Buy-In Story County gift card program as an initiative to support local businesses as our community first started feeling the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to 29 sponsors and countless community members, we were able to infuse $137,775 into our local businesses at a critical time.
To build on the passion for supporting local, this year we are launching a new, long-term currency program called Community Cash.
Through Community Cash, you'll be able to purchase $5, $10, $20 or $25 worth of cash that can be used at any of our participating members. Each Community Cash purchase will come with a unique QR code that you'll simply scan at check-out.
We are thrilled to be able to offer a program that enhances our commitment to our community, local businesses and overall economic growth. I would like to give a special thank you to the program's sponsor, Availa Bank, for helping us make this vision come to life.
Stay tuned for more program information including participating merchants, FAQs, and the official launch in the coming weeks. If you're a local business and you would like to learn more or get signed up, click here to get in touch with us.
