Patch has made it easier for local businesses and individuals to help reach their communities during the coronavirus outbreak.

For a limited time, events and classifieds are free to promote in one community, so your messages to your neighbors can get more visibility.

Posting to Patch’s classifieds section can help spread the word out about job listings, housing opportunities, stuff for sale and more.

Also, you can post to Patch’s local calendars to share fundraisers, webinars or other virtual events still happening while you’re sheltered in place.

When you choose to promote your event or classified for free, your post will get featured on Patch’s news pages and in our newsletters for the next seven days. If you want to promote for longer, or to more communities, you can do so for just $1 per day.

If you have any more questions, feel free to reach out to our support team, who can help you get started right away.

Here are the requirements...

  • - Have at least $500 raised
  • - Have the business owner set up as the beneficiary to the campaign (if they aren't raising funds themselves)
