The HLSC has heard about a multitude of heart-warming initiatives, however, we need the community’s assistance. We’d like to hear from community for nominations of businesses/organizations who have stepped up. Whether it was donating PPE to healthcare workers, food to those less fortunate or raising money for a notable cause – we want to make sure we know about it!

Jessica O’Donnell, EVP of Affiliated Chambers for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber commented, “We have heard so many wonderful stories of local businesses and organizations taking selfless action in helping our community fight this unfortunate pandemic. 7/29 will be a very special evening as we take a moment to express our appreciation for all they have done to help so many in the H/LS area and beyond. Please don’t miss out on this very worthwhile event!”
Ricky Gower, Chair of the Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber Board mentioned, “We need to stand united as a community especially during these times. There have been many businesses and organizations in our Hellertown/Lower Saucon Area who have taken a huge leadership role in helping fellow community members, non profits, healthcare workers, and first responders on the front line. It has been extremely heart warming. Let’s take some time on July 29th and come together (virtually of course) to sincerely honor these Heroes and Lifesavers the way they deserve to be honored.”
Lauren Bertucci, Manager of Affiliated Chambers for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber commented, “As Henry Ford once said, ‘If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.’ During these challenging times, community members have worked tirelessly to support one another. We persevered through the initial stay at home orders, shifted from the Red to the Yellow to the Green Phase, and we will continue to move forward together.”
