Altona Welcome Program Needs You!

The Altona & District Chamber of Commerce administers the Community/Newlywed/Baby Welcome for Altona and the Rural Municipality of Rhineland (except Plum Coulee). We arrange for business and organization coupons, pamphlets, letters, books and more to create a substantial package for people who are referred or who fill out the form on our website www.shopaltona.com.
Some local businesses provide their own inserts or allow us to create them for them. It is a really efficient system.
There is a $2.00 charge per item to have us fill the packages, have people pick them up or we deliver if necessary. We prepare a report for Contributors.
Last year we provided 45 packages and this year, we have provided 21 to date.
We are currently looking for more Contributors for the Community Welcome packages. If you are interested, contact the Chamber Office at 204-324-8793 or email chamber@shopaltona.com. Let's keep the "Altogether Altona" alive and well.
