Live | Shop | Give Local

The Takoma Foundation and the Old Takoma Business Association are teaming up to launch as new initiative encouraging Takoma Park to go local.

The Live Local | Shop Local | Give Local will encourage local shopping and community-based giving. Each month, a Cash Mob will be organized at a different business in Old Takoma.

The Takoma Foundation and the OTBA will highlight the business to encourage local shopping and the business will in turn make a donation to the Takoma Foundation to fund small grants to advance the social, environmental, economic, educational and cultural interests of the greater Takoma Park community. The first business taking part will be Amano, Main Street Takoma's unique and affordable women's boutique.

It all starts on March 14th from 6pm-8pm in partnership with Think Local First DC as part of their Takoma Park Cash Mob. Think Local First is collaborating with multiple Old Takoma businesses to bring a mob of people with cash-in-hand to shop, explore, and celebrate localism. Attendees are invited to pick up an event passport at Trohv, 232 Carroll St, NW to start. The event is follwed by a special LOCALIST-ONLY after party. For more info, click here
