Our newly adopted mission is to advocate for the well-being of older adults by providing services and resources for them to live independently. Our chamber has offered a wide variety of opportunities for our organization to engage with community members and business leaders. Almost immediately after joining our chamber, our agency’s visibility increased tremendously. Our vision is to be the trusted resource in our community where everyone has an opportunity to age successfully. Our membership has helped us share our story, engage our community with volunteer opportunities, partner with new supporters, and indirectly reach more of our older neighbors and achieve the goal of our vision.
The chamber team always does a fantastic job at pairing organizations and businesses. Whether it is looking for a company to help with a project, or looking for resources and training to strategically grow, the Chamber is an excellent resource that truly fosters our business community in Union County.
Pat reached out to connect us with Truist when Todd Price, a branch manager at Truist, was interested in selecting a nonprofit project that will support their Lighthouse project. This connection resulted in Truist donating $3,000 to Council on Aging to support our medical alert button program to install life saving devices in the homes of our older neighbors.
Our nonprofit agency has been working to increase our visibility and community presence. In many ways, the chamber has helped us become visible through networking, recommendations, training, and most importantly guidance.
