Welcome Service

Welcome Service

The Welcome Service made first contact with new residents, providing them resources for arts, entertainment and commerce with a series of small gifts attractively displayed in a basket.

Dozens of relationships must be replaced each time a family or business relocates. The Creativity Collective's Welcome Service connected organizations and businesses to new residents, an opportunity to introduce themselves and generate a relationship.

How it worked

Businesses registered and provide coupons, samples, gift certificates, punch-cards and community information.

Items such as note-pads, balloons, maps, pens and mugs were popular items. The Creativity Collective designed the baskets that were picked up by new community members by appointment. Each basket contained $400 worth of savings and tons of area information.

The Creativity Collective advertised the service to ensure that recently relocated families and professionals were aware of it. New residents brought their license from another area or old power bill and their new temporary license to get their basket. It was free to the recipient.
