Review a local vendor and you may win a basket of treats

The Johns Hopkins Purchasing Office invites employees from the university and health system to use the new "write a review" function of the vendor guide to help their colleagues identify local and diverse sources for the goods and services they need. The guide is one tool employees can use to further the HopkinsLocal goals of supporting economic opportunity in Baltimore.

During the month of October, everyone who shares a review through the online guide will automatically be entered in a drawing. On Oct. 31, two winners—one from the university and one from the health system—will be drawn randomly from the entries.

Those winners will receive baskets full of French pastries from Café Poupon, some favorite candies from Charm City Chocolate, a peanut assortment from the Peanut Shoppe, decadent cupcakes from Midnite Confectionary, and even a few treats from Howl for their best four-legged friend.

The guide is online. Read more on the Hub at Work website.
