Looking GOOD and doing a good thing at the same time!  The Downtown Association of Yakima (DAY) launched a fundraiser – Downtown Yakima Together – to support Downtown Yakima businesses and Essential Workers affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

Community members can purchase Downtown Yakima Swag (t-shirts, hoodies, and hats) with all proceeds going towards the purchase of gift cards from Downtown Yakima businesses. These gift cards will, then, be distributed to Essential Businesses in the downtown core.

In a press release DAY Executive Director, Andrew Holt says, "we wanted to do something that would put some money in the cash registers of downtown businesses while also showing our appreciation to those who are playing a vital role during this difficult time....this fundraiser affords us the opportunity to boost morale, add some commerce, and involve the community.”

The full fundraiser (with a display of merchandise) is featured on Downtown Yakima Together landing page on the Downtown Yakima website: https://downtownyakima.com/downtown-yakima-together/

Purchases can be made with PayPal, cash, checks, or card. Orders can be placed by email (attaching order form is encouraged) at admin@downtownyakima.com, or by calling the DAY office at 509-571-1328. Merchandise can be picked up at the DAY office, 14 S. 1st Street. Office Hours: Mon – Fri, 9-5
