Nonprofit Showcase Sponsorships
The Kearney Chamber of Commerce will host its first virtual Nonprofit Showcase November 1 through December 1.

This virtual Nonprofit Showcase has been designed to highlight the extraordinary work of Kearney area not-for-profits, and to provide an opportunity for all community members to learn more about the needs within these area organizations.

Community members will have the chance to win $100 Chamber Cash just for visiting the Showcase, and to vote for their favorite participating charity to be awarded a $500 grant.

Our goal is to provide a space for our nonprofits to not only share information, but to also truly connect with those looking for ways to get more involved. This will be an event where the nonprofit groups will be able to recruit volunteers and share their most pressing needs.

The event will culminate on December 1st, the National Day of Giving, otherwise known as Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. 

We are currently looking for corporate sponsors to make the Showcase a true success for these nonprofits and the community they serve.

Member Announcements & Events
The Northland Coalition, in partnership with KC Northland Strong and Helping Hands Inc., will be hosting "Taking Care of Yourself During Challenging Times" via Zoom. Presented by Jamie Wehmeyer, this presentation focuses on how COVID-19 is a community trauma being experienced by all of us in one form or another. For all of us it is vital that we maintain our resilience in order to be present as we care for those around us. This training will identify types of trauma, connect these traumas to the COVID-19 pandemic, identify what trauma responses look like and discuss trauma responses we or those around us may be experiencing. We will also discuss ways to maintain our resilience and practice self-care during this challenging time. Jamie's riveting presentation is one you don't want to miss!
