The North Scott area in Eldridge has a new campaign in town, and it's called "Buy, Stay, Be Local." It's an effort to help the town grow economically and bring the community together.

All you have to do is give back five cents of every dollar spent back to the community. Local business owners think it's a great idea not only for their businesses, but for the people of Eldridge as well.

"We're very community minded and this just fit right in our philosophy that you live here, you buy here, and you know, you're friends with people here." said Marilee Schafer, Co-Owner of 2 Sisters Resale & Gift Shop.

The campaign is expected to bring in over 6 million dollars in wages and over 200 jobs. Carolyn Scheibe, the Executive Director of The Chamber of Commerce, says it will also bring in much more.

"More money for the city, for the infrastructure for all of the cities not just Eldridge...and that means keeping your taxes lower as well," she said.
