New online local business directory BuyLocalList.com has announced that during the month of January it will donate $10 for every new business subscription it receives to elementary school children in Buncombe and Henderson counties who don’t have a snack to eat during the day.
In Fletcher Elementary alone, 80 students go without a snack every day. BuyLocalList.com wants to help efforts like the Fletcher Area Business Association’s Snack Pack program that are working to alleviate this problem. BuyLocalList.com President Jason Casman has stated that his company will continue to contribute monthly to the community in different ways.
BuyLocalList.com, a low-cost way for local businesses with limited ad budgets to connect with the public, launched in Western North Carolina on Dec. 1, 2013. The directory is exclusively for local small businesses — chains and franchises are excluded. Visit www.buylocallist.com.
