What it's all about.
Prior to COVID, the Shell Beach businesses were suffering significantly due to the Streetscape project. The Shell Beach Improvement Group and our businesses were looking at ways to drive business back, as well as support others enduring hardships. We were talking with the 5Cities Homeless Coalition about raising funds for the incredible work they do to support the people in our community.
There is a misconception that the homeless population is due to drug use or mental health issues. While this is true in some cases, there are people homeless or on the verge of becoming homeless. These people are just like you and me. There are kids attending school with yours that are living out of their cars.
When COVID hit, things got worse, our schools shut down and so did our businesses. That left a lot of our community without.
We were all struggling to find ways to help each other. I started buying gift cards from the businesses in Shell Beach that were hit the hardest during the streetscape. I then started making purchases of art, jewelry and wine from some of our Shell Beach locals that were losing business due to the shut down. My thinking was I could put ALL of these things together for one BIG raffle that would benefit the Five Cities Homeless Coalition while marketing these local businesses. With the hope of driving business BACK to Shell Beach.
By the way, the roads are clear and we have REALLY missed you! Come on out to Shell Beach, take a walk down the NEW path, breath in the ocean air, support a local business and each other.
It’s the Shell Beach way.
