Dozens of Guilford non-profit organizations are using National Small Business Week (May 12 to 16) to encourage a key part of their support base (the public) to in turn support another key part of local non-profits' success, the local business community.

The once-agricultural town of Guilford thrives today due in part to the many and varied small local businesses that surround the Green and line Route 1. As a way to say thank you to these businesses, many of which support several non-profits in town with monetary and in-kind donations, Leslie Krumholz, co-founder of GoodStreets, has gathered several of the non-profit organizations in town to promote a week of spending locally, in appreciation of all that these businesses do.
The non-profits are asking all their supporters, board members, staff, and friends to make it a point to do business locally during National Small Business week, which runs May 12 to 16.
Krumholz is urging people to take time this week to support the local small businesses in town in any way they can, "whether it's retail for gifts or items, going to local food markets, eating out at a restaurant, or even getting...a massage [or taking] an exercise class."
"I started in the non-profit world and I know how important the support of local small businesses is," said Krumholz. "So I decided to take this opportunity to celebrate small businesses, and as a way for all the non-profits to publicly say thank you. There is an ongoing relationship, and without each other we all could not do what we do."
Krumholz and GoodStreets have provided the non-profits with tool kits to promote Guilford businesses through social media such as Twitter messages and Facebook posts, as well as providing them with wording that can be used for newsletters and emails.
"There is such a synergy in towns like Guilford between the businesses and the non-profits. I just wanted to bring the two worlds together in a productive positive way," said Krumholz.
Non-profits that are participating in this special thank you are: Guilford Fund for Education , the Guilford Art Center, The Guilford Foundation, SARAH Inc., Women & Family Life Center, Guilford Community Garden Hub ("The Hub"), Guilford Youth Mentoring, Guilford Free Library, Shoreline Chamber of Commerce, Guilford Preservation Alliance, Heritage Walking Tours, The Cove Center for Grieving Children, Guilford Interfaith Ministries (Meals on Wheels, Friendly Visiting, and Charlie's Closet), D.A.Y., Guilford Food Bank, Guilford Social Services, Guilford Youth & Family Services, Guilford Rotary Club, Shoreline Arts Alliance, The Guilford Keeping Society, A Better Chance, VNA Community Healthcare, Henry Whitfield State Museum and 5 Museum Collaborative, and the Guilford Community Fund.
