The Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce has launched a new initiative in 2023. WWLCC Chamber Cares is a board of directors-driven program focusing on giving back to our community.
Participating members have cleaned gutters and reorganized the kitchen at Hannah’s Home, a haven for single, pregnant, young adult women in Mentor, and collected donations for the food pantry at St. Noel Church in Willoughby Hills. Others have volunteered at the Agape Feast, cooking and serving meals at First Presbyterian Church in Willoughby. The goal is to spread kindness and build new connections throughout Northeast Ohio. So far, the initiative has connected with more than 10 organizations.
“We know there are needs everywhere, and this is a wonderful way for our 580 members to give back to the community in some way,” says Janice Cackowski of Centry Financial Advisors Inc., chair of the Chamber Cares committee. “We’re trying to do at least a quarterly initiative and find what organizations in our footprint need help and how can we do that.”
