MARCH 30, 2020 | THE PALOMAR GROUP
Local businesses are the bedrock of our communities. These businesses employ our friends, neighbors, children and are a major component of our economy. Private businesses and individuals that are financially able, need to support the local restaurants and shops that are still open to assure that they will not only be alive but able to thrive when we emerge from this crisis.
The Palomar Group is excited to announce the SUPPORT LOCAL AND GIVE CHALLENGE. This challenge is to support local businesses that are still open during this difficult time as well as to provide goods to non-profits, first responders, healthcare and any other groups that have a need for them.
The rules are simple. If nominated, complete the following three tasks:
Step 1. Purchase goods from a local vendor
Step 2. Give the goods away — donate to either a local charity/non-profit that’s low on supplies, health care workers that are on the front line, supply chain drivers or distribution companies that are keeping the economy alive, grocery store clerks, employees that are quarantined, first responders, sheriff’s deputies, etc.
Step 3. Nominate two businesses or individuals to participate in the SUPPORT LOCAL & GIVE CHALLENGE. (Post to social media using #SupportLocalAndGive to join the movement!)
Palomar’s Local Vendor and Beneficiary: Gary’s Hamburgers & YMCA
1st two Augusta nominations are Wier Stewart and Jordan Trotter Commercial Real Estate.
The foundation of this great country is community support and lifting up your neighbors in a time of need. Be safe, take appropriate precautions and God Bless!
