Support your favorite local businesses and charities at the same time on Saturday, November 11 during Shop Your Community Day in downtown Traverse City. For every purchase you make at participating stores (list below), 15% of the sale will be donated to the nonprofit of your choice (also listed below).

That’s right, you can get your holiday shopping done early and feel extra warm and fuzzy knowing you’ve helped the community.
