The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board has launched a #MontCoStrong t-shirt fundraiser in support of the county’s COVID-19 Response Fund. The fund was recently established to aid local relief efforts in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The shirt has been designed by the VFTCB and is being sold in partnership with DJB Specialities, a VFTCB member in North Wales that specializes in custom apparel and promotional products, for $25 apiece.
All of the proceeds will be donated to MontcoPA COVID-19 Response Fund. This exclusively aids community safety net organizations that have been critically impacted by the ongoing public health crisis. These include those serving low-income and food-insecure residents, senior citizens, veterans, homeless, and housebound individuals.
“The health and well-being of our residents remains our top priority, and we wanted to do something to show our support and a sign of solidarity to help rally and unite the community,” said Mike Bowman, President and CEO of the VFTCB. “We want everyone to know that they’re not alone. We are truly all in this together, and we will pull through.”
The VFTCB is also asking people who purchase the shirt to share who they are #MontCoStrong by posting images of themselves wearing the shirts on social media.
