Support Black-owned businesses at the RTB$ Holiday Expo on Dec. 14

It's time to get some of your remaining holiday shopping done. And you can do so while supporting locally owned Black businesses at the Recycle the Black Dollar Holiday Expo.

The holiday expo takes place on Saturday, Dec. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Johnson Controls Volunteer Center, 200 W. Pleasant St.

The event will feature over 30 vendors offering a wide variety of goods from apparel and food products to books, calendars and beauty products. And the challenge being posed to shoppers is to purchase at least one holiday gift from a Black-owned business.

You can also feel good about how your dollars are being spent, since 10% of proceeds will benefit United Way of GMWC's Reducing Barriers to Employment initiative.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested. You can RSVP online.
