Although you would not be blamed to think that a small company cannot have a significant influence in its local community, the fact is that it can and they often do. This relationship works in both directions and both company and community can benefit from it. Consider collecting food or money that would support a cause. This is especially noticeable and needed around the holidays. You can also engage in conservation initiatives that are also localized and address issues surrounding the community.
- It’s easy to set up a collection jar for your customers to donate to a charity or local family in need.
- Simply buying locally and recommending non-competition small businesses in the area helps the community.
- Consider setting up a local scholarship fund, mentoring someone, or speaking at career day at a school.
“This is the perfect way to help out local families during the holidays.”
