3 WAYS YOU CAN HELP YOUR COMMUNITY
ATTEND AND PROMOTE
Main Street Ottumwa Promotions and Organization Committees host many events throughout the year to engage the community and bring attention to our local businesses. Add your favorites to your calendar and plan to attend so that future generations will grow up with the experience of participating in local events.
DONATE OR SPONSOR
There are several options to help support Main Street Ottumwa financially. Your tax-deductible donation will be valuable to ensure the continued preservation, rehabilitation, and beautification of downtown Ottumwa. Sponsoring an event is a great way to get exposure for your business or organization.
Reduce environmental impact, create more jobs, and invest in yourself. Studies show that money spent locally is more likely to stay local, and be spent again within the community, helping to foster the growth and economic stability of your local community.
