Newcomers present a tremendous opportunity for local businesses and organizations. As a way to promote local business and increase involvement in community organizations, we are putting together welcome bags for newcomers. It is only $25 for your business to participate and be included in 200 bags, with your own money-saving coupons and/or promotional items. All Toledo area non-profit organizations may participate for free.
You will need to sign up no later than December 14, 2017, pay, and give us an idea of what you plan to add to the bag. Promotional items must be received by January 5, 2018. We anticipate the 200 bags will last until around this time next year.
For details on how to sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on Facebook.
Ideas about what you can include in the bag (as room allows and on a first-come, first-serve basis) are:
- Coupons, such as a one-time, new resident offer
- Logo merchandise
- Business cards
- Fliers or menus
- Welcome note
Bags will be given to new residents and businesses as they come into the ToledoTel business office to sign up for service. This project is being coordinated by Cyndi Philbrook, Kathy Tyner, and Sheila Richardson.
