Keiter will donate $25,000 to the Greater Northampton Chamber of Commerce for a promotion that will allow consumers to purchase a $25 Northampton Gift Card and receive $50 in actual spending power.
This is the third year Keiter has initiated this effort, donating $10,000 in 2021 and doubling their investment in 2022. A $5,000 gift from the Chamber’s Neighborhood Revitalization Fund will be added to Keiter’s contribution to continue stimulating the local economy beyond the pandemic.
The 2023 Gift Card promotion, “Building Our Community Together,” launches on Wednesday, August 9th, 2023, and runs while supplies last. The $25 Keiter Gift Cards will be sold exclusively at the Chamber offices at 99 Pleasant St., Northampton, during the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Consumers must mention that they want a Keiter Gift Card, and the promotion applies only to $25 Northampton Gift Card purchases. (A $50 gift card would not be valued at $100, for instance.) There is a limit of one card per customer, per transaction.
“Our community matters to us,” said Scott Keiter, founder and president of Keiter. “This is where we live and where our families live. After the campaign’s success over the last two years, we’re thrilled to invest even more in our community this year to keep Northampton thriving.”
Based in Florence, Keiter has provided general contracting and construction management services in the Pioneer Valley since 2010 for its commercial and residential projects.
Scott Keiter is a member of the Northampton Chamber’s Board of Directors and its Finance Committee, so he is personally aware of the financial challenges that area businesses can experience.
Last year’s “Strengthen the Community” promotion was a huge success. In just 3 days, the program infused $50,000 into the local economy — a welcomed boost to local establishments. Inspired by the community’s enthusiasm and participation, Keiter plans to build on the success of the last two Gift Card campaigns.
The Northampton Gift Card is currently accepted at more than 100 local businesses, including restaurants, shops, services, spas, and more.
