LOCAL MERCHANTS AND CHARITIES TEAM UP TO WELCOME SPRING
THERE IS NO DENYING that Sandpoint is a generous community. And it’s even better when the opportunity to make a difference is combined with a fun experience for the entire family!
This year’s Spring for Sandpoint is one you will not want to miss. Saturday, April 22, downtown retail stores are teaming up with local nonprofit organizations to donate a portion of their proceeds from sales that day to specific local charities.
“Representatives from local charities will be on hand to answer your questions and show you how they serve our community,” said Robin Campbell, owner of Great Stuff on First Avenue.
Included in the day’s events will be activities for kids, an opportunity to sample food and drinks, product demonstrations, and more than 20 participating merchants.
“Most activities will take place 11am to 3pm, but in-store specials will be available throughout the day,” said Campbell.
There will also be an opportunity to win a passel of local gift certificates by picking up a passport at any participating retailer. As you visit each store, be sure to get your passport stamped! Eight stamps is all it takes to enter the drawing for three prizes totaling $500 in local gift certificates. The winners will be chosen Monday, April 24.
Spring for Sandpoint is held the same day as Earth Day, which led the downtown businesses to partner with nonprofits that focus on protecting, enhancing and enjoying the beauty of our area.
Among the stores and nonprofits participating are Kaniksu Land Trust at Larson’s; Lake Pend Oreille Water keeper at Great Stuff; and Pend d’Oreille Pedalers at Sharon’s Hallmark.
Mark your calendars and celebrate Spring for Sandpoint. It is a great way to shop locally and benefit area nonprofits at the same time.
All donations raised during Spring for Sandpoint will stay in the community, and purchases made at local retail stores also support our community.
