Who We Help

Since 1951 Women’s Division Chamber of Commerce has been dedicated to working together to improve our community. Through our monthly granting, annual projects, and fundraisers we are able to support the varying needs of our local organizations. Our volunteers provide a helping hand wherever possible.

Annual Projects

These are special causes that have earned a place in our hearts, and are all made possible by the generosity of our members.

Adopt-A-Senior

WDCC members buy Christmas gifts for residents in area nursing homes. The beautifully wrapped gifts make the seniors feel special. It is the highlight of our year and a blessing for the WDCC elves who deliver them.
