Harrison Agassiz Chamber donates back to community

The Harrison Agassiz Chamber of Commerce will be financially supporting numerous local organizations in 2014, at a total of $12,500.

The money comes from membership fees from the many businesses involved with the Chamber. The biggest contribution the Chamber will make this year is in the form of a one time, $5,000 donation to the Agassiz Harrison Museum and tourism office for new projects.

They'll be handing out $1,000 each to the Harrison Festival Children's Day, Community Service's food hamper program, and to the Village of Harrison for Christmas lights.

They will give $500 each to the Village of Harrison and the District of Kent for Canada Day festivities.

They will also give $500 to the following organizations and events: The Harrison Dragon Boat Festival, the Walk/Run for Heritage, Kent Raceways, Bands on the Beach, Slow Food Tour, Sasquatch Days and the AESS Chamber bursary.

Giving the membership fees back into the community is part of the Chamber's mandate to represent and promote the region, encourage business, broaden the tax and provide employment.

Other events planned for 2014 include two separate workshops, one in the spring and one in the fall.
