The Town of Plainfield, in partnership with the Plainfield Chamber of Commerce, is now selling “Plainfield Proud” t-shirts to celebrate community unity. The t-shirt reads “Better Together: Plainfield Proud” as the nation navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, limiting the ability to gather and commune. The t-shirts are on sale for $15, and proceeds will go to My Daily Walk, a local organization dedicated to assisting low income families with shoes, coats and clothing at no cost.
“It was important for us to come together with the Town to not only bring a sense of camaraderie to the community, but also to support a local charity while giving business to a local small business impacted by the pandemic,” said Brad DuBois, President of the Plainfield Chamber of Commerce.
The t-shirts will be available for pick-up on Friday, September 18th and Saturday, September 19th, the day of the Quaker Day Parade. The Quaker Day Parade is a long-standing, 41-year tradition in Plainfield. This year’s theme is “Plainfield Proud.”
“We started using the hashtag ‘Plainfield Proud’ when COVID-19 closures began in mid-March,” said Andrew Klinger, Plainfield Town Manager. “The phrase just stuck; we have an amazing community here and we saw and continue to see the best of this community throughout the pandemic.”
Shirts can be purchased through the Plainfield Chamber of Commerce at https://plainfieldincoc.wliinc18.com/events/Plainfield-Proud-T-Shirts-2302/details, using credit card only. Purchases can be made in-person with cash or check on Saturday, September 19th prior to the parade. All questions can be directed to Stephanie Singh, the Director of Communications and Marketing, at email@example.com.
