Chamber Bucks make great gifts! They are used just like real money and can be redeemed at over 80 different businesses in and around Sault Ste Marie. Most recently added to the Chamber Bucks brochure is some of the Bay Mills Indian Community's businesses such as Sacy's Restaurant inside Bay Mills Resort and Casino and The Bay Mart gas station! Our Chamber Bucks program is such a great benefit to our members and it is awesome to see the program expanding and our dollars staying local. If your looking for stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, or simply a gift for that person you don't know what to get? Buy Chamber Bucks and let them decided what they would like! Chamber Bucks can be purchased by anyone and are sold at the Sault Area Chamber of Commerce located at 2581 I-75 Business Spur.

Chamber Ambassador President Terri Parker presenting the $500 check to Captain Daniel Voss of the Salvation Army. Each year the Ambassadors make a donation to a charity of their choosing. This year they chose the Salvation Army Backpack program. The program helps kids who are in need with a backpack stuffed with food so during the holidays when they are home on break from school the kids have something to eat. Thank You Ambassadors!
