ADOPT A FOSTER CHILD PROGRAM
The Chamber has teamed up with our member National Youthy Advocate Program (NYAP) once again this year to provide Christmas gifts to the Foster Youths of NYAP. For the past several years, we have generously donated our time and efforts to supplying the children with two gifts each, which are received at their Christmas party in December. Without our support, some of these children would not receive gifts for Christmas. The Chamber members have been overly generous each year and we look forward to another year of participation.
The Children's Wish List will be sent our to our members by November 15th and the deadline to drop off your gifts, either to the Chamber office or directly to the NYAP office, by December 11th. This is a great opportunity to give to children who greatly appreciate our efforts. Thank you for the past support!
New Program "Member Deals E-Blast" - December Deals - Deadline is November 29th.
The Chamber initiated a new program called "Member Deals E-Blast". Each month, our members will have an opportunity to offer a "special discount/sale" to all members in the Chamber via E-Blast. These "deals" will have an expiration date at the end of the month and must be submitted at least one week before the first day of the month. Each month, we will send out a new e-blast with new deals for that month. Please keep your "Deals" short and sweet, so that our members can view them easily.
Our goal is to provide our members with another opportunity to give back to our members. Along with the deals, our members can continue to offer their ongoing discount offer via the Chamber's Member to Member Discount Program, which can always be found on-line at the Chamber's website, http://www.tallmadgechamber.com.
If you have any specials that you would like to share with others, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to include them in the next Members Deals E-Blast, scheduled to go out on November 29th. Please type Member Deals in the Subject line, so that Becky will be able to spot these right away.
