On June 9th, 2023, the State celebrates Local Gems (Local Businesses) through the #SupportLocalGems campaign.
Our philosophy is to support local businesses all year round! Dine at your favorite restaurant or order takeout, shop in person or online at a local retailer, purchase a gift card, write a positive review for your favorite local business, or say “thank you” to a company in your community for all they do.
Did you get out to spend your money with a local business recently? Tell us all about it in the comments!
Last year our Business and Education Committee partnered with 26 member businesses to provide baskets of treats, gifts and handwritten thank-you notes to everyone that works in our Post Falls Schools. This included public and private schools and everyone from custodial staff, food service, maintenance, transportation, nurses, teachers, administrators, to support staff in the Post Fall School District, Genesis Preparatory Academy, Immaculate Conception Academy, St. Dominic School, Elevate Academy North, Wired2Learn. These individuals play an important role in the education, health and safety needs of our children.
With your help, we want to acknowledge their hard work and dedication with tokens of our appreciation. The Business and Education Committee along with the Post Falls Chamber Ambassadors will collect, assemble and drop off the baskets on April 6th. We will have a total of 27 baskets that will serve over 1,000 employees. Here is how you can help…
