Four non-profits share how they see great benefit from their Chamber memberships

Four non-profits share how they see great benefit from their Chamber memberships

The Chamber is the voice of the business community, but did you know the Chamber is an excellent resource for non-profit organizations as well?  Non-profit organizations provide a way for citizens to band together for the common good, as they transform shared hopes and beliefs into action. The Chamber supports the noble endeavors of non-profits, and they make up a large percentage of our database. Why? A few of our non-profit directors say it best!

Anthony Tidwell, 2020 Chamber Board Member and Cutwell 4 Kids Founder/ Executive Director

“The Chamber of Commerce gives Cutwell 4 Kids (C4K) opportunities to meet with other local business owners and to network in ways our organization couldn’t do before becoming a member. As both C4K founder and a Prevention Provider with Ouachita Children, Youth, and Family Services, my days get so hectic, so the chances of meeting other local business owners and being able to invite them to our functions would be rare. I cherish our membership with the Chamber and look forward to whatever the future has in store.”

Sheryl Staggs, Ouachita Children, Youth, and Family Services Executive Director:

“Ouachita Children, Youth, and Family Services is a non-profit organization serving Garland County since 1977. Our partnership with the Chamber is vital to our existence. They have been instrumental over the years by providing exposure to the community about our ever-growing programs. They helped us celebrate our 40th birthday, the retirement of our Executive Director and numerous ribbon cuttings to promote our new services: our homeless day drop-in shelter and our domestic violence intake office. The Chamber does a great job of informing its members of current events by sending weekly e-blasts. As a new Executive Director, I have found their Business After Hours events to be very resourceful in providing me the ability to make connections that I wouldn’t normally have within the non-profit sector. As we continue to grow, I know I can rely on the Chamber to stand beside us and provide us with support and recognition.”

Stacey Pierce, Our Promise Cancer Resources Executive Director and Co-Founder:

“As a grassroots, homegrown non-profit that raises funds to provide financial assistance to local cancer patients, our partnership with the Greater Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce is essential. Their ability to keep the public up-to-date on current events and aware of the immediate needs in the community helps Our Promise Cancer Resources be able to provide to those who need our services. Our Promise turned 10 in March and was awarded “Non-Profit of the Year for 2019” by the Chamber. We were so grateful for the recognition and are excited to have the Chamber’s support moving forward as we break ground on The Our Promise House...a legacy project 8 years in the making. Our relationship with The Chamber is special and individualized, which is fitting as we are a part of such a unique and eclectic town. I’m excited to see what we will do next...together!”

Katja Summerlin, Sunshine Therapeutic Riding Center Executive Director:

"Sunshine Therapeutic Riding Center is a non-profit organization in Garland County serving people of all age groups, focusing on children with disabilities, by offering highly effective therapy on horseback. As a brand-new organization with great plans and big dreams, a strong connection to the Hot Springs community is essential for us to grow our programs and carry out our mission. The Chamber of Commerce provides the perfect platform for us to connect with local businesses and educate the public on how our services help the community. We are fortunate to have their support and access to their network! "
