As COVID-19 continued to directly affect local businesses, the Visalia Chamber of Commerce upheld its fight to advocate for all businesses in order to continue to create a strong business community and, overall, a stronger Visalia.
Just as talk of reopening took place at the national, state and local levels, the Visalia Chamber of Commerce stepped forward and developed a Re-Opening Business Resource Kit. To help businesses reopen safely, the kit provided resources and recommendations, including fellow members who could help them succeed.
The chamber’s Loyal to Local T-shirt campaign successfully concluded with more than 130 T-shirts sold, with funds donated to the Bethlehem Center, Family Services of Tulare County, FoodLink
of Tulare County Inc., Visalia Emergency Aid and Visalia Rescue Mission, which worked extra hard during COVID-19 to feed Visalia while supporting local businesses.
Thank you to Smith Promotions for partnering with the chamber on the campaign and all donors for your support. Funds will also allow the chamber to continue to fight for local businesses affected by stay-at-home closures.
