SUPPORT NEW HAVEN BY SHOPPING LOCAL 

78% of New Haven businesses are independently owned or operated!*

 

This holiday season will most likely look different for a lot of us, and there's never been a better or more important time to support our community by shopping local. Whether you're looking for unique items, gift cards, or ways to give back, our local New Haven community has no shortage of options!

At District Arts and Education we're truly fortunate to call New Haven our home—a city that has embraced our mission, our team, and the students / individuals we serve. So this holiday season we'll be highlighting some of our favorite local vendors and sharing additional resources for where / how you can support our community of entrepreneurs and social warriors as well. 

 

Follow us on social; tag your favorite New Haven-based small businesses, venues, and charities; give a social shout-out for superior service and quality products, and help spread the word by using the hashtag #thankfulthrivingnhv. 

Let's show our gratitude on more than just Thanksgiving and keep our community thriving through the holidays and beyond!
