Have you ever sat at home - bored out of your mind, having no idea what was going on in your community?
Or have you searched online for several hours trying to find something to do?
Or have you ever put your heart and soul into planning an event only to have it flop because of poor attendance?
We waste time trying to find the goings on in our community. We search out solutions in many different forms. We haphazardly commit to events, but often end up overbooked or losing track of our commitments. WE’RE BUSY!
There is a disconnect between people and place in most communities. Often events are poorly attended or other opportunities are missed, not for lack of interest, but more often - for lack of awareness.
Our goal is to provide an app that simplifies the way people engage in their community by offering relevant information in an individual way. The purpose is to build a truly connected community.
“The Local Shift” community app brings focus to our local economy. It provides a centralized location for users to access information on a wide variety of community “stuff” – All under one “digital” roof.
But it doesn’t stop there; future development includes gateways to local business rewards, local investment, and local innovators.
Community Engagement - Activities, Artisans, Events, Fundraisers, Garage Sales, Groups, Jobs, Local Food, Lost & Found Pets and Volunteer Opportunities.
Users have the ability to create and edit their own listings. The community engagement section is 100% free to use.
Future features include:
Local Business Rewards Portal Local Investment Portal Local Makers Portal
Improved filter, ui, and modified main page to include artisans and local food.
Removed activities and events from main page (can still be found in drawer).
