U.V.E.R. – the Upper Valley’s first consumer co-op delivery service – launched earlier this summer; now, we need your help raising $6,500 to fund two e-bikes through a new campaign in Vital Communities’s The Local Crowd Upper Valley crowdfunding platform!
The e-bikes will be critical in the growth of U.V.E.R., allowing for more efficient deliveries in the heart of the Upper Valley and ensuring a commitment to sustainability. U.V.E.R.’s vision is to create a consumer-oriented delivery service that is entirely controlled by local businesses, guaranteeing customer care and low delivery costs.
In early July, Chris Acker, Executive Director of U.V.E.R. and Upper Valley native, worked with local business owners, Vital Communities, and the Upper Valley Business Alliance to launch the first phase of the cooperative delivery service in Hanover. U.V.E.R. provides delivery services from Lou’s Restaurant and Bakery, Boloco Modern Mexican, Murphy’s on the Green, and Impasto Italian Eatery.
We plan to expand delivery services throughout the Upper Valley in a series of regional phases. As we grow, U.V.E.R. plans on delivering from more local restaurants you love and eventually provide grocery and CSA drop-offs!
All of the funds raised from this campaign will go directly towards purchasing two e-bikes, increasing the delivery capabilities of U.V.E.R. and helping us grow our reach across our local community.
