It will have their logo on the chest and then ‘The Great Community T-Shirt’ logo on the sleeve rallying everybody’s t-shirt together,” said Cathy Hendrickson, a part of the creative sales team at Image Packaging.

“We’re volunteering our marketing services for free. We’ll do a 30-minute consultation with them, and build a slide so that they can share on their Facebook,” said Eileen Peet, owner of Wendell Street Marketing & Documentation LLC.
