How It Works

Central Pinellas ChamberCARES is a community outreach initiative of the Central Pinellas Chamber and Chamber Education Foundation. It fosters active engagement of the business membership in support of a cause, program or service provided by a member non-profit organization.

Each year, a program and/or project will be adopted from requests received by Chamber member non-profit organizations. The Chamber Board of Directors will oversee the selection process and manage activities. The 2021 beneficiary was chosen by the Board at the meeting on April 27th.
