RECI Community Asset Map
You can help build a stronger local economy and more vibrant neighborhoods around our Congregations!
A study of retail economics in 2004 found that $100 spent at a neighborhood independent business generates $68 in local economic activity while the same $100 spent at a national chain store generates only $43 in local economic activity. This means that every $1 spent at a neighborhood independent business goes 58% farther in improving the local economy.
Between our RECI Congregations and Congregants we can bring dollars back into our local economy, create more jobs, and ensure a safer community. The Certified Business Community Assets listed on the Map were surveyed and awarded for their commitment to values shared by RECI. They deserve our patronage.
