Local Business Seeking Partners To Help Fill Community Need
April 29, 2020 | View PDF
For awhile now, a local Sidney business has been contributing a percentage of sales revenue back into the community via a local organization.
In February it was for the Angel Fund, which helps out local families with children to meet school lunch costs. Hanson Independent chipped in and matched Sidney Mercantile's contribution to the Angel Fund.
For the month of March, the Brodie Gorder Memorial Project was the recipient of Sidney Mercantile's community contribution. The Brodie Gorder Memorial Project helps local families with expenses for children's extracurricular activities like sports equipment or 4-H travel expenses.
There currently is no match partner for March and beyond so Chris Entzel, Sidney Mercantile owner, is seeking a local business to partner up and help match contributions. With a lot in the community shut down due to the pandemic, there is no better time for local business to partner up in filling community needs.
"The community would very much appreciate it," adds Entzel. She plans to choose a local organization to donate to and continue this monthly well into the future.
Sidney Mercantile will be back to normal hours of operation Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. as soon as it is safe to do so at 214 S. Central Ave., Sidney. Just look out for the mannequin on the sidewalk.
