DON'T LET THE LIGHTS GO OUT!
The Merrick business community has been struggling to stay afloat since the start of the pandemic. This has resulted with many businesses unable to pay rent, overhead, remain active Chamber members and even stay open.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the Chamber was not permitted to have our annual fundraising events such as our Spring Fest & Fall Festival. Our Holiday Lights program is funded by the proceeds of September's Fall Festival and we are dependent on that money to light up the community for the holidays. The Chamber has solely provided funding for this extensive project - not the Town and no other community organizations assists us.
In order to continue the light program, we are asking that you consider making a donation to the "Don't Let the Lights Go Out" fund or mail a check made payable to Merrick Chamber of Commerce and send to PO Box 53, Merrick, NY 11566. Community spirit will only be diminished without Holiday Lights and the already hurting businesses. Over 70 light poles are decorated throughout Merrick and we don't want to see the town go dark in 2020.
We thank you in advance for your donation! Be safe, healthy and Happy Holidays!
