The novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is changing the face of business and families in the Bremerton community. In an attempt to respond to the current needs, we have set up this page to help with resources for the public and business community during this time of crisis.We believe that now more than ever, we need to communicate and engage with our community. We find it vitally important to get accurate and timely information to our business and community members. Below you will find resources for verifiable information AND resources to help support our local community.
The Bremer Bond Campaign is modeled after our country’s famous war bond campaign during World War II. Just as the attack at Pearl Harbor launched our country’s involvement in World War II, the Coronavirus and its shutdown of local business triggered the launch of the Bremer Bond Campaign.
Available online on April 8, the $100 Bremer Bond has been beautifully designed by local graphic artist Jessica Randklev, and will be printed as a collector’s item embossed with the official seal of Bremerton Chamber of Commerce. Bremer Bond T- shirts have been designed by Sam Enlow of Fingers Duke Design Studio. Ten dollars ($10) from each purchase will be donated to the Bremer Bond Campaign. Bremer Bonds may only be redeemed after the resumption of normal business operations as deemed by the City of Bremerton. Bonds may be redeemed through the Chamber for $100 of gift certificates and cards at local Bremerton area businesses. Initial participating businesses include Axe & Arrow Gastropub, Ballast Book Company, Sprout + Thistle, Tony’s Pizza & Italian Restaurant and others. Businesses interested in providing gift cards to the Bremer Bond Campaign should contact Bremerton Chamber of Commerce. One-hundred percent (100%) of the proceeds from the sales of BremerBonds will go directly to local businesses. If you want to make a tax deductible donation to assist in the efforts, the Downtown Bremerton Association will help facilitate that as well. Please visit the website brembuilt.com.
