The Black Mountain Strong T-shirt

BLACK MOUNTAIN - Looking for a way to help small businesses in Black Mountain?

Visit Black Mountain, an independent tourism site that promotes Black Mountain, has launched the “Black Mountain Strong” T-shirt fundraiser to help businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Purchase a $20 T-shirt from, and $10 goes to the small business of your choice.

Many downtown businesses in Black Mountain are true “Mom & Pop” shops that are dependent on tourism. Since most are considered nonessential, they’ve been closed since mid-March.

Many don’t have the resources to begin selling their wares online, and many are too small to qualify for some small business relief funds. Buy a T-shirt to help these vulnerable businesses survive and stay “Black Mountain Strong.”
