“I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing this resource will be. Someone to do the leg work, to identify the vendors, to save us time and energy to ensure that we can spend our money wisely and locally.”
"Money is like blood. It needs to keep moving around to keep the economy going, meaning purchases are twice as efficient in terms of keeping the local economy alive.”
“We are very grateful to BronXchange for supporting us to continue fulfilling part of our dreams, and with sources of work with which we are allowed to grow and learn at all times. They are supporting us unconditionally to grow as a cooperative and we hope to continue counting on the support you are giving us."
"Working with BronXchange has enabled our organization to contract with vendors like Bio Classic, a Bronx based worker-owned cooperative, during a time when it is so important to support small and local business. BronXchange has worked collaboratively with us throughout the process and along with Bio Classic, has adapted to our changing needs with friendly, supportive, and quality service."
"From day one of our business relationship with BronXchange, it has been honest, fruitful, and productive. Tim, Angel, and Gabe make sure that it stays this way with their consistent communication, timely service, and easy manner. Riverspring Health is happy to continue in this partnership and looks forward to many more productive years."
