BAS Fundraiser: “Buy Local” Campaign

We will be soliciting local small businesses to give Bnai Abraham a small percentage of the sales from Synagogue members who identify themselves as such at the time of purchase. We will list all participating merchants in the Bulletin on a tear-out card which you can carry in your wallet as a reminder.

According to ‘Buy Local Philly’, three times as much money stays in the local economy when you buy goods and services from locally owned businesses instead of large chains. This campaign can definitely spread some goodwill from our Bnai community to the heart of the area business community.

If you know of any business that would or should participate, please contact Judy Walker at judithwlkr@gmail.com. We will have a soliciting team armed with information and a letter from the Synagogue.
