Supporting Our Community During Crisis
A COVID-19 Fundraising and Community Project
The Salado Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce a new fundraising and community project initiative that will launch April 20, 2020. This project will benefit; Hearts and Hands Ministry, local Retail & Food member businesses, and locals working on the frontlines of COVID-19.
Utilizing the hashtag #SALADOSTRONG, the Salado Chamber of Commerce has designed a T-Shirt that will be available for purchase for $25 to fund this Community Project. T-Shirts can be purchased online and will be available in sizes Adult Small through XL. They will be offering contactless pick-up and low-cost shipping options. T-Shirt sales are expected to continue through May 31, 2020.
The first goal of the Salado Chamber of Commerce is to raise $1000 for Hearts and Hands Ministry – whose goal is to “help alleviate hunger by providing nutritious food, personal care items, and social service information to those who need them. Our hope is to sustain, strengthen, and educate individuals/families that live in our community and surrounding areas.”
The second goal is 2-fold. 1) Put money back into the community by purchasing Gift Cards / Gift Certificates from Retail & Food Member Businesses. 2) Donate these purchased Gift Cards / Gift Certificates to locals working on the frontlines of COVID-19.
The Salado Chamber of Commerce realizes that it is difficult to have a complete list of locals who are working on the frontlines, which is why they are asking for your help. If you know someone that works and/or lives in Salado that is working on the frontlines of COVID-19, please email the Chamber office at email@example.com
About the Village of Salado
Salado, Texas, located on Interstate I-35 between the cities of Waco and Austin, was an original stop for the stagecoach lines and was home to the first co-educational college in the State of Texas. Salado was founded at the Old Military Road crossing of Salado Creek on October 8, 1859, coincident with the conception of Salado College. Founded by early Scottish settlers because of its plentiful springs and rich farmland, Salado became a center for commerce and culture. Today, Salado is a destination for a thriving creative arts and business community with an emphasis on providing visitors a unique shopping, dining and lodging experience.
