ChamberCares is a program of the Greater Houston LGBT Chamber of Commerce and Greater Houston LGBTQ Chamber of Commerce Foundation to give back to the broader community.
Examples of ChamberCares support include the "Support Healthcare Workers and First Responders" campaign and the Chamber Holiday Food Drive.
In 2021, the Chamber Holiday Food Drive provided 15,789 free meals to LGBTQ+ seniors at the Law Harrington Senior Living Center, an LGBTQ-affirming housing center, and other non-residents through the Montrose Center programs.
Donations help fill the food pantry at the Law Harrington Senior Living Center as well as the Montrose Center, which helps feed non-resident seniors.
The Chamber Foundation needs your help to make the 2022 Holiday Food Drive even MORE successful to support more LGBTQ+ Seniors and those in need this holiday season!
For the Chamber Foundation, the Holiday Food Drive is about community and giving back during the holiday season. As an organization, the Chamber is at the intersection of business + community. We are using our resources to bring together business and community to support LGBTQ+ Seniors during the holiday season.
