Valley Chamber Strikes Gold on the First Try


The East Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce took home the gold in their ‘Christmas in July’ rookie season in 2016.

Each year, the ‘Christmas in July’ food drive, benefiting United Food Bank crowns an individual chamber and business from the East Valley who donates most. This year, CW6 is a proud sponsor of the food drive. It’s during these summer months when Valley families are hit hardest, as families struggle to feed children who are normally getting meals provided by schools, along with climbing utility bills. In 2016, East Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce board member, David Carrizosa suggested that the East Valley Hispanic Chamber of Commerce get involved and they went for it. Together, they struck gold with a victory. Donations from the members of the chamber and their businesses contributed to providing 10,178 meals to Valley families.
