Lorie Reinert, Executive Director of The Chamber Foundation, said, “Over the last 13 years, we have invested over $500,000 for beautification projects across the Lehigh Valley. In spring of 2020, we were able to partner with The Chamber and member businesses to provide emergency COVID-19 relief of $353,000 to small businesses. On Christmas Eve, we were also able to support restaurants with an additional $150,000 during the shutdown. That’s over $1 million in direct support!”
