As the holiday season approaches, our hearts are filled with warmth, joy, and the anticipation of celebrating with loved ones. This time of year also marks the perfect opportunity to give back to our community by shopping locally.
Shop Small Bingo
Goshen County is taking the excitement of supporting local businesses to a new level with the Shop Small Bingo initiative! Participants receive a bingo card featuring actions that uniquely support local businesses. As shoppers purchase or visit businesses and save receipts, they mark off corresponding squares on their bingo cards. It’s a delightful way to turn shopping into a community-wide game. Once you have completed your bingo card, you can submit the bingo card to enter a drawing for a chance to win Goshen Bucks for those who complete five actions or even achieve a blackout. Shop Small Bingo adds a playful spin to holiday shopping and reinforces the spirit of supporting local businesses that make Goshen County thrive. Join the fun, explore our community’s local treasures, and let the Shop Small Bingo adventure begin!
