Chamber News

Our TACC membership just keeps growing! We are excited to share that Bluestone Bank is proud to sponsor the membership of Taunton Area Community Table through the Chamber's "Business for Business" program.

This time of year is all about giving and receiving, and we are so grateful and inspired by these two organizations who are great examples of making a positive impact in our community.

Taunton Area Community Table Meal Center is a community-based meal center that provides delicious, healthy foods to individuals & families in a safe, warm, and friendly atmosphere right in Taunton. Their team is made up entirely of volunteers with the biggest hearts!

Learn more about TacT at tactmealcenter.org or follow them on their social channels.

Welcome Wendy, and the entire crew from TacT; we're so thrilled to have you in the TACC family!

Rise and shine with us! We know how hectic schedules can get, and sometimes evening events aren't doable. We have a solution - a morning networking event! Stop by 4YEW on Wednesday, January 18th at 9:00 a.m. to check out this great new spot and meet with other Chamber members. This is a perfect way to build new connections, and rekindle the old! We look forward to seeing you then!

4YEW serves smoothie bowls, smoothies, cold-pressed juices, coffees, matcha, toasts, pastries, and more fun items to the menu coming very soon! Register below.


Get in the holiday spirit by donating to the Holiday Cheer Campaign! Again this year, all donations will be matched by our campaign sponsor Morton Hospital. Proceeds will support Taunton Diversity Network , Old Colony History Museum and A Life Worth Living, Corp. Let’s show our support for these deserving organizations!
