“Small Towns, Big Hearts” merchandise helps small businesses in Ross County

As our businesses continue to recover from the COVID-19 shutdown, the Chamber is still at work helping them navigate the reopening waters and advocating on their behalf. Unfortunately, Congress didn’t come through with a new stimulus package to help our small businesses or to include organizations such as the Chamber in SBA and other loan programs for consumers who wish to borrow money.

While membership is holding steady, we’re taking a hit because our successful events are canceled as we comply with the state’s mandates on congregate settings.

Enter one of our newest members, Quali-Tee Design Sportswear Co., who came up with a way to help us offset the money would would normally make on events. Quali-Tee actually took it a step farther by partnering with us on a project to bolster community pride and help local small businesses.

We all know that Ross County is full of small towns, from Frankfort to Kingston to Bainbridge, and the people in and out of those small towns have big hearts, too, giving to those in need and helping to boost the spirits of those who need a lift on occasion.

With that in mind, the Chamber and Quali-Tee are pleased to present “Small Towns, Big Hearts” merchandise. From a t-shirt to a great reusable grocery bag and stainless steel tumblers, you’ll find something for just about everyone on your list. Each of the items features the Small Towns, Big Hearts logo and an outline of Ross County with each of the small towns listed inside.

They’ll make great gifts or buy one of yourself to show how proud you are of Ross County and its people. Now, the merchandise will only be available for a limited time, so you’ll need to act fast to guarantee your order.

A portion of the proceeds goes back to the Chamber to help support our advocacy efforts for our business and community.
