Wabash County, IN – As the holiday shopping season approaches, Grow Wabash County is once again encouraging the community to shop local. 

One fantastic way to promote shopping local this holiday season is by purchasing Grow Wabash County gift checks which can be used at almost 300 local businesses and organizations in and around Wabash County. 

Grow Wabash County gift checks (formerly known as Chamber Gift Checks prior to 2017) are gift certificates that can be redeemed at any business or organization that is a current Grow Wabash County investor. 

Since 2017, nearly $300,000 has been spent locally within Wabash County through the GWC gift check program.

“The holiday shopping season is one of the most crucial times for our small business community,” Chelsea Parson, project manager for Grow Wabash County, said. “Grow Wabash County gift checks are a great way to show your support for our fantastic investors and local businesses while also giving everyone on your holiday shopping list the freedom to choose their own gift. Gift checks make your giving go further.”

Gift checks can be purchased from Grow Wabash County by contacting Amber White at or 260-563-5258. 

Gift checks must be paid for up front with cash or check. Credit/Debit card payments are not accepted for gift check orders. Purchasers are encouraged to order checks in increments of no greater than $25 to ensure as much of that money as possible goes to GWC investors. 

The last day to order gift checks before Christmas will be EOD on Monday, Dec. 18 and gift check orders may be picked up no later than noon on Wednesday, Dec. 20. 

For a full list of Grow Wabash County investors that accept gift checks, visit Grow Wabash County also offers a list of retail stores, restaurants and other GWC investors where gift checks are most commonly used. That list can be found at
