New business owner expands her efforts to help locally owned businesses

The goal is to support and promote locally-owned businesses, especially during the pandemic.



Haley Dollarhide began an effort just before Christmas to help local businesses struggling during the pandemic. She was collecting gift cards to local restaurants and then giving them away through her Instagram account. Then people started flooding her with donations to buy more gift cards, and people would send me $50.20 dollars, $100. I got $500 from some people. It was crazy. Since then, her idea has turned into a full blown business because of the overwhelming response. Her business is called Shop Local Truth to faith based business, where we help small businesses get the reach, the outreach that they’re looking for. Through her business, Dollarhide has set up a relief fund for local restaurants. You could go to the website shop local truth dot com, if you would like to donate. 100% of the proceeds go toward purchasing gift cards to local restaurants, which will then be given away by Dollarhide and her team members on social media. Because, I’ll say, like, who wants a gift card toe Apple owes today and I’ll like, ask a random question like What’s your favorite thing on the menu? Managers at the man ship wood fired kitchen say the restaurants. Catering business has been hit the hardest by co vid, and with social distancing restrictions, the restaurant can only seat about 30% capacity. They say.
