Our Community Wins When You Choose Local

Our Community Wins When You Choose Local

Just in time for the holidays, Houston’s collaborative spirit is in full force with the launch of the “Choose Local” campaign. This initiative calls on residents of Houston and the surrounding areas, including Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Brazoria, Galveston, Liberty, Waller, Chambers, Austin and San Jacinto counties, to patronize local businesses and support the local creative community.

The impact of the arts and cultural sector is far reaching: they pay their employees, purchase supplies, acquire assets within the local community and their audiences leverage significant event-related spending. A vibrant arts and culture industry enhances quality of live and helps local businesses thrive. Prior to the storm, cultural nonprofits contributed more than $1.1 billion and over 25,000 jobs to the local economy. In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, 71 cultural nonprofits alone reported a storm impact totaling more than $56 million, with 25 percent of that cost coming from post-storm service interruptions.

Choose Local, and help our community grow.
