By Beth Milligan | Nov. 28, 2019

The Downtown Traverse City Association's Shop Your Community Day raised more than $26,000 for local charities this year.

The event, held on November 9, saw participating merchants gave back 15 percent of their sales to charitable organizations in an effort to support the Grand Traverse community and promote the impact of buying local. For every purchase made at participating stores, 15 percent of the sale was donated to the participating organization of the customer’s choice.

This year's event raised $26,422.98, bringing the total donated since Shop Your Community Day launched in 2005 to over $300,000. Top recipients this year included Cherryland Humane Society, AC PAW, Boots for Kids, Planned Parenthood, The Children’s House, and TART Trails. The 2020 event is slated to take place on Saturday, November 14.
