MERCHANT DISCOUNT PROGRAM HELPS BEAUTIFICATION PROJECTS

Community Volunteers Get Discounts from Local Businesses

May 7, 2012

[FERNDALE] – Over 70 local businesses are offering financial support to community organizations that received grants as part of the 2012 Sullivan Renaissance program.  The Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce arranged for merchant discounts – typically from 10% to 20% – on products and services volunteers use to clean up and beautify communities.

This is the twelfth year that businesses have participated in the Sullivan Renaissance Merchant Discount Program.

“Keeping dollars in the county is not only smart and green; you can see the difference that has been made in our communities,” said Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Terri Ward, “We know that beautification efforts increase tourism and boost economic development.  This is a practical way that local businesses can help themselves while contributing to our economic recovery.”

Businesses that would still like to join in this year should contact the Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce at 845-791-4200 or Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2452.  Businesses do not need to be Chamber members to help. 

All of the projects awarded grants on April 19 have been given a special discount card and a list of participating businesses.  The list of participating merchants and the list of 2012 projects can be found on the Sullivan Renaissance website. 

Renaissance community projects will be completed by August 6 and the Sullivan Renaissance Awards Ceremony will be held the evening of August 13 at SUNY Sullivan in Loch Sheldrake.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.  Sponsors include Bold Gold Media Group/Thunder 102, FisherMears Associates, Robert Green Dealerships, Sullivan County Democrat, The River Reporter, Thompson Sanitation and WSUL/WVOS.

To obtain the list of 2012 Business Discount Card Participants or for more information about its programs, call Sullivan Renaissance at 845-295-2445 or visit the website at www.sullivanrenaissance.org.
