CRMC Promotes “Shop Local”

“Shop Local”

Promotion Benefits Local Patients; Chance to Win $250 Shopping Spree

Cookeville, TN – Throughout November, dozens of locally owned businesses will be collecting funds to support local patients in need. Shop Local is a collaborative effort between the Cookeville Regional Charitable Foundation and locally owned businesses in the area. Business owners will ask customers to make a small donation during the check-out process. One hundred percent of the funds collected will go to help meet the charitable needs of local patients in the community. Partners will have collection jars in their check-out area and display Shop Local flyers within their stores.

Shop Local will also include a week-long scavenger hunt with participating locations. Each business has a question and customers are encouraged to visit ten stores to collect answers. Participants then submit answers in writing, along with contact information, to either the CityScape Office or the Foundation Office to be entered in a $250 shopping spree drawing. The scavenger hunt will take place the second week of November. Answers must be submitted by 4:00 pm on November 13. For a list of scavenger hunt questions please visit:
