Have a great #opportunityfunded summer

 

Summer is a great time to get outside, try new things, and go new places. Why not make your summer #OpportunityFunded? By patronizing #OpportunityFunded businesses, you can discover new experiences right in your own community!

And when you shop #OpportunityFunded, the money you spend goes back into the local economy, supporting jobs and generating economic activity in your neighborhood. Did you know that locally owned businesses reinvest in the local economy at a rate  60% higher than chain and internet retailers?
