Three tips from our Chamber as we move toward economic recovery. #KeepItLocal365
Dear Valued Chamber Member,

This year has been a most unusual time for us all. You, our members, are our first priority and we will continue to serve you in the best possible way. We have been fortunate to serve you uninterrupted as our team was able to shift to working remotely during our Shelter-in-Place, and when we re-opened the Chamber office on Tuesday, May 26th, we didn’t miss a beat.

We also understand many of our members, especially restaurants, retail shops and others who were deemed non-essential continue to struggle financially today. With the support of the following generous businesses, we are pleased to launch the Pay It Forward Fund to help members keep their membership active with our Chamber.  

If you are asking yourself, what more can my business do to help other businesses during this difficult time, please consider supporting a member who simply cannot afford their membership this year. Either by paying a membership in full ($299) or a portion would be very helpful. You may know of a business because of your relationship with them; if you do not, we can apply your donation to a business in need.

Please send an email to ashley@eldoradohillschamber.org or call our Chamber office at (916) 933-1335 if you are interested. A list of our Chamber Members can be found by clicking here or our digital Business Directory & Relocation Guide.

In turn, other than having our undying gratitude, we will celebrate your kindness on our social media platforms, website, and recognize your business in our eNews or if you prefer, you may remain anonymous. 

We’d like to give a special thank you to the following businesses who are Paying It Forward:

Thank you for your support, and please let anyone at our Chamber know if you have any questions. #StrongerTogether
