On Saturday, April 27, bring your Community Day Flyer into a participating business on Central Street and they will donate a portion of your purchase to the participating organization of your choice. Donations range from 5-20% on your purchases. What could be simpler? You make yo……ur regular purchases on Central Street (and maybe a little something extra for you or someone special) and you donate to well-deserving charities in the community. Keep an eye out for a special invitation from your favorite community organization. Nothing feels better than crossing something off your to-do list and helping your community at the same time!
