ANNOUNCING:  The "Chamber Cares Circle"

It's no secret that GSSCC member businesses are generous supporters of the many nonprofit organizations that serve our community. The businesses and their employees contribute their time, talent, and treasure to various arts, health, social, and service organizations that work to serve those in need.  

This year, as part of the Chamber's annual Awards & Installation Dinner, scheduled for Thursday evening, June 27, GSSCC will recognize some of the members that demonstrate just how much the business community cares about the broader community in Silver Spring, Montgomery County, Maryland, and beyond.
