Many businesses donate items rather than funding to support local events. Building Supplies for photo booths, candy for trick-or-treating, kid-zone supplies for events, and giveaways for events are just a few examples of generous in-kind donations over the years.
If your business would like to consider an in-kind donation, please contact Nicole Parham, Main Street Manager.
