“Many of the small businesses and organizations in the downtown district have had to close their doors indefinitely and we, like many others in the community, worry about their future,” she said. “Monies raised under the stewardship of BID will assist the businesses in these challenging times.”

“Fostering a bright and vibrant downtown district is at the core of the BID’s mission – this fund will help our district, to the benefit of all who visit, work, and live in Norwich, now and in the months ahead.”

She added that the Norwich Business Improvement District is a 501(c)3 and any contribution is tax deductible.
