BUY 1 – GIVE 1 – SHOP LOCAL
Purchase a new #OneBatesvilleStrong Gift Certificate to your favorite local Batesville Area Chamber Member business and they will receive 100% of the funds! Then the Chamber will match $5 for every $20 purchased. The funds will go to local families in need and non-profits, etc. All #OneBatesvilleStrong gift certificates will come in increments of $10.
They can be mailed or picked-up at Batesville Area Chamber located at 301 Shopping Village by calling 812-934-3101. BECAUSE WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER!
The #OneBatesvileStrong Program was developed by the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce and local business sponsors with the sole purpose of supporting those in our communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The program enables customers to put dollars into the hands of their favorite businesses while also providing assistance to those affected by this crisis.
The program is really quite simple. Buy 1, Give 1. When you purchase #OneBatesvilleStrong gift certificates through our website (BatesvilleIN.com) or call the Chamber office at 812-934-3101, a portion of your purchase will be matched through our Chamber Sponsors. The idea is to get money flowing back into local businesses (100% goes to the business) who may be experiencing a dramatic reduction in revenues, while at the same time providing assistance to families and non-profits. We have partnered with the Batesville Area Resource Center who helped create One Batesville Task Force. This task force launched the One Batesville Community Response Fund. The fund will provide emergency financial relief to support families that have lost significant income.
