Eateries, Retail & Charitable Organizations


You can support your favorite downtown businesses, either by shopping online, ordering carry-out or delivery, purchasing gift cards or making donations.


Here are a few ways you can continue to support downtown businesses and organizations.

  1. Order carry-out or delivery. Tip the same amount as you would dining in.
  2. Shop online: many local stores have options to purchase online.
  3. Get a growler from your favorite brewery.
  4. If you have a ticket to a cancelled event, transfer your ticket purchase to a donation.
  5. Consider making a donation or purchasing a membership.
  6. Purchase and give gift cards.
  7. Share your favorite businesses on social media.
  8. Ask businesses, artists and cultural organizations how you can help. Some cultural organizations provide options on their websites.
  9. Looking to volunteer? GiveGauge can connect you to opportunities to give back. 

We will continue to share additional ways to support downtown businesses in the coming weeks on the DAP website and through social media.

Continue to make smart decisions for yourself and the community by staying informed about the best ways to stay healthy and avoid the spread of COVID-19. Please follow the recommendations of our public health officials with regard to social distance and proper health etiquette when entering public spaces. We believe that through compassion, commitment to one another, education and thoughtful decision-making, we can lessen the effects of COVID-19 and remain a strong, vibrant and caring community.
