HOWLAND

The Animal Welfare League’s Menagerie Thrift & Gift Shoppe is the next business chosen for the Mahoning Valley Cash Mob.

The purpose of the cash mob is to encourage people to support local, small businesses en masse, which gives the business owner an economic stimulus, said Geo Peterson, cash mob administrator who owns Off The Cuff & On The Button, A Fine Consignment Boutique, at 7301 West Blvd., Suite C-5, Boardman.

The event is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Saturday at the thrift store, 6037 E. Market St. in Howland.

About 2 p.m., Cash Mob members will convene at Up A Creek Tavern in Howland. The tavern’s owner, Mark Matash, will donate to the league 10 percent of the day’s net profits of any meal or refreshment purchased by all customers.

Peterson said he will donate 10 percent of his net profit this month to AWL. The league has also decorated a “Giving Tree” in Off The Cuff & On The Button with items they need for dogs and cats, which is an opportunity for customers to make a direct donation.

The Mahoning Valley Cash Mob is seeking new members. If interested, contact Peterson at 330-726-1200 for details.

I think this is a great idea, I saw this on the national news about another area doing it and thought maybe we could get back to helping our neighbors..We need to save the " Little man" as Alan Jackson so greatly states it in his song.
