If you're looking to help out local healthcare workers, while supporting local restaurants and businesses, TheMerch.Link of the Syracuse area has your back.

TheMerch.Link was founded by Central New Yorker Matt Masur as a small business project to help stay busy during the pandemic:

The idea was to stay busy and create some fun, fashionable and funny new products to offer the world. So in November 2020, we launched this new site to do just that.

Once it started to take off, Matt realized the potential to pair his business with local charities. Over the weekend, TheMerch.Link announced that donations and proceeds from ALL SALES will be used for good going forward. Right now, the focus will help support local businesses and healthcare workers during the pandemic.

Currently we're focused on showing our thanks and support to Nurses, Doctors and other Healthcare workers fighting to keep us all alive during this pandemic. At the same time, we're looking to help local restaurants and caterers."
