The Come Back Up Fund
In March of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting directions from Federal and Provincial governments forced the closure of non-essential businesses.
This has had a devastating financial effect on many Uptown Waterloo businesses. With much uncertainty regarding reopening businesses and the future climate of business in general, the BIA has created a post COVID-19 funding program. This funding will be used to assist Uptown stores and shops with costs associated with initiatives and changes they’ve made that impact the sustainability and resiliency of their business after the pandemic.
Supporting Uptown Businesses During the COVID-19 Pandemic & Beyond
All proceeds from our tote sales will go into the Uptown post COVID-19 Come Back Up Funding Program to assist local businesses in implementing new procedures and initiatives, impacting their sustainability moving forward.
If you would like to make a donation in lieu of purchasing a tote bag, please select a tote bag, leave a note for us at checkout, and your contribution will go into the fund and we will donate the tote on your behalf.
Please note that we are offering local pickup and delivery in the KW region. Tote bags will be available mid-June. Pre-ordering is open now! If you are experiencing issues with your order, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
