Chamber in Pictures
The Chamber has many relationship building opportunities. It pays to network at Friday AMs. Just ask Mike Wiley, Hoodview News.
REMINDER: Shop Small Saturday is a great (and fun) way to give back to the business owners in our own back yard. Take full advantage of ALL the activities the Spirit of Christmas (happening on Shop Small Saturday) has to offer.

Thankful for a Local "Outlook"

Giving is such a blessing but when it is done locally, it is the best!  Fill-A-Bag is an example of how business can do business while at the same time provide for our community. One of the most influential businesses in these efforts is the Gresham Outlook. While print media may have its limitations, it has done amazing work getting out the word to the needs of those with food insecurity locally.
