Help us, help you! Take a brief survey. Your responses will allow us to promote your business, share creative ideas so our members can learn from one another and prepare resources to support businesses like yours.

Chamber Challenge “BE THE CHANGE”

Many of our friends and neighbors have been financially impacted by COVID-19. This virtual tip jar has been created for anyone that has affected. This includes local service industry staff – employees at bars, restaurants, salons, business owners, etc. – to post their Venmo or PayPal information so that customers, neighbors, and Burke County community members can continue to support them. Also, this is an opportunity as a business owner to share how others can purchase gift cards to your establishment for future use.
