FAVOR - "Find and Assist Veterans of Record" - is a program where local businesses offer discounts to those who have proudly served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Similar programs have been successfully launched in neighbouring counties too. The county sees FAVOR as an opportunity for local businesses to stand up and show their support for U.S. troops while benefitting from a little economic boost of their own. The FAVOR program also brings new customers and helps cultivate the personal relationships that are so important in making small businesses thrive.
You may view the list of over 100 area merchants who have already signed up to be a part of the FAVOR Discount Program.
