Union Street Fire
Employee Relief Fund 

Needless to say, we are still reeling from the devastating news of the ravenous fire which directly affected Chamber members Jackie O’s, Kismet and Uptown Dog among others in the wee hours of Sunday morning. While we are heart broken over the extensive damage and loss of business as usual for some time to come; we are grateful for our first responders, that no one was seriously injured, and that the university expediently and safely found housing and provided resources for the displaced students.

Below is a link that was initiated to assist employees who were thrust into the hardship of loss of income during this surge of cold weather, the costs associated with it and the upcoming holidays. 

The Chamber has pledged $2K to this as it is well within our mission to help our neighbors and to show support and empathy for our member businesses.  Together we make a difference!

Thank you for all that you do.
