The Hilltop Business Crawl was a huge success!

The Crawl provided an opportunity to connect with and support local Hilltop businesses and vendors impacted by Tacoma Hilltop Link Construction and COVID-19. The Crawl footprint included businesses along MLK Jr. Way and S 11th ST and featured handmade goods, artwork and food in vendor areas.

   Community members picked up a Hilltop Business Crawl Passport  at Hilltop Action Coalition and set out to collect 4 stamps from participating businesses so they could enter to win great raffle prizes! They also had the chance to vote for their favorite business for the People’s Choice Award.

   Raffle Prizes will be drawn by Alyssa Torrez and Kristine Coman at the September 21st, HAC Virtual Weekly Update via Facebook Live. They will also announce the People’s Choice Awardee at this meeting. 

   Did you participate in the Hilltop Business Crawl? Take the Hilltop Business Crawl Attendee Survey and win a Crawl T-shirt printed by The TSM Shop. Twenty T-shirts will be given away to survey takers! Thank you for supporting your Hilltop Community!
