Take it Home for the Holidays!
Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Think local as you start your holiday shopping this month! Shopping in Athens County keeps money in Athens County. For every $100 spent locally, $48 remains in our community. That’s why supporting the businesses that support you is so important! Get creative this holiday season – Athens has many robust locally-owned independent businesses selling products from handmade crafts and agricultural products to books, custom shirts, and home decor. Check out www.athenschamber.com for a complete list of Chamber Members.

On behalf of our membership and your dedication to support businesses in the Athens Area, these Chamber Member nonprofit organizations with admirably huge missions will each receive $500 this holiday season:

Alzheimer’s Association / providing education and support services to individuals with Alzheimer’s and their families; Athens Food Rescue / fighting hunger by reducing food waste; Friends of the Shelter Dogs / saving the lives of adoptable dogs; John W. Clem Recovery House / assisting male addicts into recovery; Live Healthy Appalachia / promoting healthy eating and active living
