Join the East Valley Chambers of Commerce for Christmas in July to help give back.
‘Christmas in July’ is an annual food drive competition that benefits the United Food Bank. Various Chambers of Commerce and businesses within the chamber from the East Valley compete in hopes of being crowned the chamber or business who donates most. Food banks hit their lowest supply in the warm summer months and is also when Valley families are hit hardest due to increased utility bills, and feeding children who often are part of reduced school meal programs. Last year, Organ Stop Pizza in Mesa, Ariz. was the business winner, with an impressive 531 pounds per employee donated. The chamber winner went to the rookies at the East Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. This year, the competition is fierce, with a goal of feeding 100,000 people and we hope to accomplish that with your help. The participating chambers this year are The Tempe Chamber of Commerce, Mesa Chamber of Commerce, Apache Junction Chamber of Commerce, Gilbert Chamber of Commerce, Queen Creek Chamber of Commerce, as well as the reigning champs, East Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Join the competition and give back by helping out your local chamber of commerce.
