You see, the 55,065 dollars (WOW – impressive in and of itself) spent locally by the Pottstown School District in the month of May (with an average of $83 per Pottstown School District employee during the month long initiative), in “buy local” speak may translates to as much as 440,520 dollars for the Pottstown community just by the compound effect of keeping those dollars local! (I encourage you all to Google the “multiplier effect of buying local” to do some fact checking/research of your own.)
I, too, am almost speechless buy such simple, yet staggering numbers!! But, to be fair to such an awesome accomplishment and commitment from the Pottstown School District, and to help the Pottstown Buy Local committee attract our next Pottstown business willing to take our challenge to “Buy Local” for a month, we need some help from you all with shouting it from the Pottstown rooftops!
As always, thank you for your continued support and, in the words of Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed. It is the only thing that ever has.”
Power to the Pottstown People!
