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.

The 2021 Chamber Cares Project: Be a Santa to a Senior of Pinellas

Visit our Christmas tree at the Chamber office, in support of Be a Santa to a Senior Pinellas! Pick out an ornament bulb, which has a senior's name, purchase their gifts, bring them back and place then under the tree. If you've taken an ornament bulb and purchased the gifts, please bring them back for a photo in front of the tree. Gift collection will end in December. Let's show our seniors they haven't been forgotten! 

September Update: We've received over a dozen gift bags so far! Thank you to David Puckett - GTE Financial, Sue Osborne - Elmcroft of Pinecrest, Rob England - England Brothers Construction Company, Karen Gonzalez - Business & Family Insurors, Rhonda Anderson - Mutual Mortgage, Melody Hunter – Melody Hunter Realty, Joan Patterson – GilDewey’s, Chris Cook - Regions Bank and Carly Beaulieu - Big T Printing for dropping off your gifts.
