Gift cards generate $10K for Hart businesses impacted by coronavirus.

HART – Hart businesses have received a $10,000 boost thanks to a gift card incentive program launched by the Hart Economic & Redevelopment Team (HEART).

On May 22, community members were given the opportunity to purchase a $35 gift card to participating Hart businesses for only $25. The additional $10 came from a generous match from HEART.

 Within one week, 280 gift cards were sold, resulting in nearly $10,000 invested directly into Hart businesses — including restaurants, retailers, spas, lodging, gyms, and entertainment.

HEART is seeking funding for future rounds. If you are interested in sponsoring or contributing a donation of any amount towards the second round of gift cards to help small businesses, please contact the HEART office at ‪(231) 301-8449‬ or email
