Digital Gift Card to Support Whatcom County Businesses and Local Economy during Pandemic

Some local businesses are finding it harder to keep the lights on as more people stay home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Without customer support, less money circulates through local economies, which could be detrimental to smaller communities.

Sustainable Connections, in collaboration with economic development agencies in Whatcom County, put a virtual twist to an annual campaign to support local business. The group is offering the Whatcom Think Local First Gift Card. It’s a community-based digital gift card to keep local spending local. Customers can use the digital gift card in-store or online at more than 150 businesses across the county.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
