Collaboration

Community and Giving

  • Focus on the welfare and improving the quality of life in the local community by actively engaging our members and their resources on charitable initiatives. This includes active ongoing support of selected area charities as one of the Chamber’s key pillars.
  • Promoting programs that educate and/or train students and existing workers to the benefits of the Pineville competitive enterprise system and prepare them for careers/ career growth
  • We believe charity and giving isn’t a once a year activity, but rather an integral part of who we are.  The Chamber has chosen to focus our resources primarily on two charities that meaningfully impact the challenges within Pineville, the SLYP area and Charlotte.
