15 Jan 2021
Fareway is once again helping Fort Dodge small businesses by providing $4,000 in gift cards.
The Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance will be distributing 80 gift cards to 80 of its members in the coming days. Each card is worth $50.
Chris Palm, manager of the Fort Dodge Fareway store, dropped the gift cards off to Jill Nelson at the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance on Wednesday. Nelson is community development director for the Growth Alliance.
“In an effort to help support local businesses, we are partnering with the Growth Alliance to provide gift cards to local small business owners,” Palm said. “This is a way to help small businesses that have had to shut down or there’s been reduced hours. Being an essential business, we are fortunate that we get to stay open and take care of everybody.”
Nelson is grateful for Fareway’s generosity.
