This holiday season let’s all make an effort to shop local. This year, more than ever before, our local merchants need our support. Our downtown shopping areas in Chappaqua and Millwood are all decked out for the holidays, thanks to the beautiful decorations planned by the Beautification Advisory Board. Come out for a socially-distanced holiday shopping stroll or join us for a Holiday themed Zoom Around Town (more information to follow).
Another way to support local businesses is NEW CASTLE RESTART, a program launched by the Chappaqua-Millwood Chamber of Commerce and an all-volunteer group of community members, with support from the Town Board, to providing disaster relief to our small business community in the time of COVID-19. Community members can make donations to NEW CASTLE RESTART to help our local businesses through COVID-19. Learn more: https://www.newcastlerestart.com/
Donations are tax-deductible and provide direct assistance to those most in need. The benefit to the local businesses and employees is better than simply “buying local,” because the grants made from NEW CASTLE RESTART are themselves, tax-free. The New Castle community is incredibly generous with their time, talent, and resources – NEW CASTLE RESTART is a grassroots effort to help our neighbors in need.
