MORRIS - The Grundy County Chamber and the Channahon Minooka Chamber have joined the new initiative Chambers All In for Economic Recovery.
Chambers All In for Economic Recovery is a collaboration of chambers across Illinois. It is all chambers’ mission to support business communities and help ensure that businesses can thrive for years to come. Last fall, chambers partnered through a social media campaign to encourage using health and safety practices to keep businesses open. Now, the growing coalition urges the Illinois Legislature to prioritize economic relief for Illinois’ businesses.
Through extensive collaboration, the coalition has identified a platform to bring short- and long-term relief to businesses. The platform includes various recommendations to aid businesses’ bottom line, recover from the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and establish pathways for constructive collaboration with the public sector. Nearly 50 chambers from across the state representing more than 13,000 businesses and 580,000 employees call for the Legislature to take up this platform and provide relief to the business community.
“Most every industry has been impacted by COVID-19 and our local businesses continue to struggle. There have been numerous state and federal programs that have helped, but many businesses fell through the cracks or just need more assistance to get through,” Grundy Chamber President Christina Van Yperen said. “Our voice is being heard, but through this initiative, we can make sure the voice of business is among the loudest.”
People interested in learning more about the All In platform should contact the Grundy Chamber at grundychamber.com, email@example.com or call Van Yperen at 815-942-0113. Additionally, the community can engage with the initiative by following the Grundy Chamber on Facebook and Instagram.
