The Cleveland Police Foundation announced today that participating charities in the Support Greater Cleveland campaign will begin recruiting merchants on Wednesday, April 15th. Brochures are available upon request by calling 216.744-9666.

Here a couple of recruiting tips to follow:

  • Try to stay within the towns and villages affiliated with your charity.
  • If you know a small business owner in a neighboring community, please do not recruit other businesses in the area.
  • Invite the best of the best, such as your favorite restaurant, bar, auto repair shop, barbershop or hair salon, clothing store, plumber, electrician, music store, gym or health spa, or coffee shop. Literally, any small business that could benefit from increased traffic during slow periods should be invited to participate.
  • Please don’t wait. The more merchants you sign right away, the more your monthly revenue will be.

Need help with local chambers of commerce and merchant associations? A member of the Support Greater Cleveland team will be happy to make a presentation on your charity’s behalf. Send us an email at
