Help Us Continue to Promote American Made!

As we begin the HOLIDAY SEASON, everyone is asked to look at the labels on all products when you’re out shopping. America’s businesses proudly listing they are made and assembled in the United States of America are depending on your business and are grateful for efforts like the Buy American Made Campaign which is promoting a reasonable balance between American and foreign made products.

During the holiday season carefully consider the gifts you’re planning to purchase for family and friends to see how many levels of American workers are employed as a result of your purchases. I urge you to shop with the well-being of American workers in mind so that the businesses employing them remain successful. You are also urged to discuss the goals of the Buy American Made Campaign with others and encourage them to look carefully at labels before making a purchase.

Here are a few additional ways you can help at this time of year:
November, 24th, Thanksgiving Day, a time to give thanks and unite our family, friends and neighbors to support the Buy American Made Campaign and jobs for American workers.
Friday, November 25th, Black Friday, a time to focus on American Made EVERYTHING, so American made businesses benefit from your purchases.
November 26th, Small Business Saturday, a national event to support America’s small businesses is another opportunity to seek out American made products.
November 29th and 30th, the last days of American Made Month and an opportunity to consider what more can be done to make the balance of the holiday shopping season a success for the businesses manufacturing, assembling, promoting, distributing and selling American Made Products.

Thanks for spreading the word about these efforts. For more information and to view a copy of the American Made Month Proclamation, visit:
