Alliance launches “Back to Business Charlie West” campaign

backinbizCWVcroppedAs water is restored to the Charleston area, residents and businesses are demonstrating the great resiliency and for which West Virginians are known by picking up right where they left off. Businesses are reopening, people are going back to work and children will soon be back in school.

The Charleston Area Alliance encourages all businesses and residents to let the world know that nothing can keep us down by participating in a “Back to Business Charlie West” campaign.  The campaign features a logo, media outreach, Facebook, Twitter and other social media communications, and upcoming educational forums to help companies get back to business.

We invite businesses, whether they were closed or not, to display the attached flyer in their windows as a sign of solidarity with their community.  Stickers and printed posters will be available at the Alliance offices in the next few days.  Individuals are invited to display the same flyers in their windows at home.

Businesses should use the following Twitter hashtag to let their followers know that they have reopened: #BacktoBizCWV. Workers can let their friends know they’re back on the job with the same hashtag.  Shoppers and diners can express their appreciation for businesses impacted by the water crisis using the hashtag.

“When things can look their worst, West Virginians are at their best.  We couldn’t be prouder of our community, and as the region’s economic and community development organization, as well as the largest regional chamber of commerce in West Virginia, we’re committed to helping our businesses and people get back to work,” said Alliance President/CEO Matt Ballard.
