The Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Main Street Zephyrhills and the City of Zephyrhills is gearing up to give back.

JumpStart Z’Hills: Main Street Gives Back

On Thursday, June 4th at 4:00 pm the community will host a live remote
segment featuring Downtown Zephyrhills businesses opening back up and asking for our community to donate blood.

A scavenger hunt is underway this week to promote this event. For the next several days ZCOC will post a picture on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with hints to a prize. The Zephyrhills Community Redevelopment Agency has donated 13 gift certificates to many of our downtown businesses for the winners of the scavenger hunt. Melonie
Monson, CEO of the Zephyrhills Chamber states, “We are thrilled to have our businesses opening back up and wanted to create a buzz around this event by giving a gift that will help both recipients and our downtown businesses. We love that the CRA was able to donate the prizes and spur some revenue for our downtown folks”.

We are also excited to use this occasion to help replenish the needed supplies to our blood banks. OneBlood will be onsite from 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm and the first 15 people donating will receive a $10 gift card to Sonny’s BBQ Zephyrhills. Kern’s Family Construction has also donated two beautiful birdhouses and anyone donating that day will receive a chance to win these beauties.

Monson adds, “OneBlood let us know that they are in need of blood donation here in Zephyrhills and we wanted to respond to the call. We are sure our citizens will take this to heart and come down on Thursday to give this live saving donation. As we all know, it’s all about saving lives!” To reserve a spot for donation, visit the Zephyrhills Chamber Facebook or and click on the calendar to take you to the event.

The Zephyrhills Chamber and Main Street Zephyrhills will be hosting a live Facebook event from 4:00 to 6:00 pm that afternoon showcasing our downtown businesses and what they have to offer. Gail Hamilton, Director of the Zephyrhills Community Redevelopment Agency states, “It is the small businesses in our downtown area that make our City such a great place to live, so come join us downtown and enjoy being part of an effort to help save lives with a blood donation and please don’t forget to support your favorite small business!”

This event is part of the JumpStart Z’Hills series implemented by the ZCOC during the COVID-19 pandemic. JumpStart Z’Hills is an online virtual series showcasing business strategies, trade secrets, new ideas, and how to have fun in Zephyrhills. Each week we share the knowledge of our business partners and showcase our great community and share these videos on FaceBook, YouTube, and our website, “This online series has been a huge success, states Monson, it has helped our community to keep engaged during this crisis and has given much-needed support to our members.” We encourage the public to join us each week to learn more about this great
community we call Zephyrhills.
