Help Stimulate the Economy, Shop Small, & Support Local Businesses!
We've raised almost 30K for local businesses…and counting!
The Chamber is working to help our local businesses as we navigate the impacts of COVID-19
How Does It Work?
With all the uncertainty around the various county and state “shelter in place” orders many of our local businesses are not getting the support they need to thrive. We came up with a way to help support, while some doors are not open.
We're encouraging locals and visitors to support our businesses by buying gift cards! We will provide an online platform for anyone to buy a gift card for any St. Helena business wishing to participate.
Supporters can purchase a digital gift card on StHelena.com from any of the participating businesses and use that gift card at a later time.
Our social media movement is asking purchasers to post their gift card purchases online to spread the word! Tag a friend they want to enjoy takeout or go shopping with!
All the proceeds will be distributed to participating business within an appropriate timeframe.
The St. Helena Gift Card Challenge was designed by the St. Helena Chamber of Commerce to help support local businesses and encourage the community to shop the #94574 during the Covid-19 global pandemic, and help stimulate the economy. All proceeds go directly to any of the participating businesses. Some of St. Helena's small businesses don’t have the means to create gift cards, so the Chamber set up this platform to help facilitate.
It’s easy. Buy a gift card, once processed you will receive a digital gift card. Present that to your merchant of choice and they will redeem and honor your purchased amount. All proceeds are paid to the merchant directly from the #SHGiftcardChallenge. Buy gift cards now, use them later and help support your favorite local St. Helena Businesses. Once a gift card is purchased, all liability shifts to the business. The Chamber is not responsible for handling transactions between businesses.
