Shop Local Raleigh has teamed up with local artist Paul Friedrich & Raleigh Screen Print to help support small businesses in Wake Co. 

Purchase a Here for Good t-shirt to help support small businesses during this time of need. Proceeds from shirt sales have been placed into a fund to help cover operating costs for small businesses in need.
