Businesses have suffered greatly over the last 19 months and continue to face unprecedented cash flow constraints and uncertainty. Many have operated under reduced capacity for a significant amount of time and have had to hire additional staff to verify documents or to implement new staff for security purposes because of the COVID-19 vaccine certificate requirements. In addition, due to travel restrictions and the closure of the US-Canada border, tourism has been at an all-time low, further impacting these businesses.

Many hands make light work.
Join the organizers and volunteers of the Good Food Box (winner of last quarter’s 100 People Who Care funding) in the big back room at the Moose Hall to help portion and organize this month’s grocery order.
You’ll have the opportunity to see first-hand how a tiny bit of funding, an amazing crew of volunteers and the power of bulk buying makes a box of healthy fresh fruits and vegetables affordable for program subscribers every month. No special skills or equipment is needed; you’ll be given straightforward tasks and will work alongside other Chamber Members.
Make new connections and get to know one of Thunder Bay’s best-kept charitable secrets, literally hands-on.
About Charity Connect Events
One of the best ways to build connections between supporters and the charities that make Thunder Bay stronger is old-fashioned, hands-on, personal experience. Charity Connect events provide opportunities for charities to host groups of Chamber Members on their premises for activities that support the charity and give attendees an insider view of how the organization works. Attendees can participate in a fun activity, get to know the charity, and network with like-minded Members. These events are promoted through the Chamber’s event calendar, our weekly eNews and our Facebook events.
Charity Connect events are an aspect of the Charity Connect program. Learn more here.
