Keep it Local Robbinsville to Continue as Awareness Program Beginning Sept. 29
ROBBINSVILLE, NJ – (August 10, 2017) – Robbinsville Township will be retiring the rewards component of the Keep it Local Robbinsville campaign effective September 29, 2017.
The initiative, first introduced by Mayor Dave Fried during his 2012 State of Robbinsville Township Address at Centro Grille, will continue as an awareness program.
“Keep it Local is one of the most exciting and challenging initiatives of my tenure as Mayor,” Mayor Fried said. “For the past five years we have worked tirelessly with our local business owners, consumers, third party IT vendors and participating charities to create a program that brought more focus and awareness to shopping local. I am proud to announce that through May of 2017 we have directed over $10,000 to the eleven 501c (3) charities.
Starting next month, Keep it Local Robbinsville rewards cards will no longer be accepted by participating merchants, and a portion of each sale will no longer be set aside and directed to charity. All charitable receipts received by Robbinsville Township will be evenly dispersed among the 11 charities in the KILR network, as will any revenue remaining from advertising previously sold on the Keep it Local Robbinsville billboard at the junction of Route 33 and Route 526. Consumers should redeem any rewards in their account prior to Sept. 29.
“We are extremely proud of the efforts that went into making the Keep it Local a success for our network of charities and local businesses,” Mayor Fried added. “We wish to thank everyone much for their participation, patience and support.
