Support the “Save Our Locals $20.21” Campaign This Holiday Season
There are only a few weeks left to support the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce’s “Save Our Locals $20.21” campaign. From now through December 31, Saratoga County residents and out-of-town visitors will have a chance to win gift cards by spending or donating at least $20.21 at a local Saratoga County business or nonprofit. Five lucky winners will be picked each week.
Since holiday shopping season is underway, this is a great opportunity to shop local and perhaps win a gift card for yourself. Full details are available online: https://www.saratoga.org/save-our-locals-20-21/
