“The idea is to not only give local businesses the cash flow they need, but also create a sense of community and that we’re all in this together.” Kristen Scheuerman, a partner at Herrling Clark.
APPLETON, Wis. (PRWEB) March 25, 2020
In an effort to help local small businesses during the economic slowdown caused by the COVID-19 virus, Appleton-based law firm Herrling Clark will be buying gift cards from local businesses and then giving them away to the community at large via social media.
Herrling Clark will launch the effort, called #WereWithYouWednesday, on Wednesday, March 25th. Attorneys from the firm will purchase gift cards from a variety of local restaurants and retail businesses. The gift cards will then be given away via the firm’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.
Herrling Clark will post the “gift card of the day” each Wednesday morning in the coming weeks on its Facebook and Instagram accounts. Anyone who comments on the cards before 9 p.m. that evening will be entered into a drawing with winners announced the following Thursday morning. It’s possible that on some days there may be more than one gift card available.
“Things are uncertain and scary right now for so many people so we want to do what we can to help. And we want to make this fun. Some weeks we’ll ask for people to comment with a favorite local business so we can help promote those businesses and other weeks we might ask folks to share ways they’re staying busy at home,” said attorney Kristen Scheuerman, a partner at Herrling Clark. “The idea is to not only give local businesses the cash flow they need, but also create a sense of community and that we’re all in this together.”
Herrling Clark is encouraging law firms and businesses statewide to implement a similar program. Scheuerman said the firm will continue the #WereWithYouWednesday campaign as long as the state’s “Safer At Home” order or other social distancing protocols remain in effect.
