We are grateful to have REV Federal Credit Union as our presenting sponsor of Buy Local Season for many reasons. This local financial institution doesn’t just support this important community initiative financially, but continues to show up as a real partner. REV sent several team members out into the local business community early in the campaign to help us spread awareness about the ways the local businesses could engage and make the most of this annual awareness campaign during the holiday season. Their team also shows up to the Buy Local Fests and helps us drive community engagement on-site.

And we’re not alone. REV supports a seemingly endless list of community nonprofits through their ongoing “REV Cares” focus. “Through REV Cares, our team is a collaborative workforce buzzing with inspiration, skill and energy actively working with local organizations and supporting causes that create positive outcomes in the community,” states the community-centric page of their website.

“Buying local is about perspective and purpose,” says REV Federal Credit Union’s President/CEO, Jason Lee. “It’s about making a commitment to reinvest your money into this community by supporting local businesses. REV is proud to power Buy Local Season and shine a light on the amazing artisans and merchants that make the Charleston Metro Region such a great place to live, work, and play.”
