At our November 10, 2022 monthly networking luncheon, we presented 16 $25 Fred Meyer gift cards ($400) to The Storehouse food bank for their Thanksgiving fundraising campaign. In addition to the food provided by The Storehouse, families will be able to use the gift cards to buy their own main course, whether it is a traditional turkey, tofu or something specific to their culture.
This donation was made possible by our Good Work Fund, a restricted fund that comes from our member sponsors, each of whom invests $750 or more in the Covington Chamber each year. A portion of their membership investments goes directly to the Good Work Fund.
Every month or so, a committee selects a local cause, project, or community "good work" to support. Past donations include coats for Thrive Wellness Clinic's "No Cold Kid" campaign, $500 to support Oil Change Day, $300 to buy safety vests for litter clean-ups, and $600 to purchase PPE for local businesses at the height of COVID-19.
Thank you to these sponsors for making our Good Work Fund possible:

Voting members of the board of directors will nominate and select officers for 2023, per our by-laws. Congratulations to our board members, and thank you to each of them for agreeing to serve in these vital roles!
Please join us in congratulating Bridget O’Connor, community engagement officer for Red Canoe Credit Union, who is the new chair of the Covington Chamber board. Bridget served as chair-elect in 2022, and when chair Cass Laney stepped down, Bridget graciously accepted the chair position, per Covington Chamber bylaws. The board confirmed her appointment on October 28, 2022.
Thank you, Bridget, for your willingness to fill the vacancy a little earlier than planned. The board and staff are excited to work with you in your new role.
