    Chamber Foundation of Sandusky County Purchases Gift Cards from Small Members Affected by Covid-19
     
    The Chamber Foundation of Sandusky County, with donations from Chamber members, has raised enough funds to purchase large amounts of gift cards from small retail, entertainment and salon/spa Chamber members who were forced to close during the COVID-19 crisis.
     
    “We wanted to help our small members the best way we could,” said Rachel Wynkoop, Director of the Chamber of Commerce. “By purchasing gift cards, we are hoping for two waves of cashflow to these small members. The first being the initial purchase. The second when people use the gift cards and spend more than the gift card dollar amount.”
     
    The Chamber Foundation was able to purchase $500 in gift cards from 12 small Chamber members throughout Sandusky County.
     
    The Chamber of Commerce will be giving away the gift cards via Facebook contests in the upcoming weeks.
    The Chamber of Commerce of Sandusky County has been helping businesses succeed since 1946. For more information, please call 419-332-1591 or visit www.scchamber.org.
