A Message from the Paulding Chamber...

Your Paulding Chamber team is committed to the success of our community and ensuring the conditions for healthy commerce. With the spread of COVID-19, it is imperative for our business community to make fact-based decisions to keep our local economy strong while taking precautions to protect our residents. Your Chamber staff will continue to work diligently to serve our members during this challenging time and stay true to our mission of supporting our businesses. We will keep our membership aware of any postponed or cancelled events through our regular email communications, website and on our social media platforms, including Facebook and Instagram. Our office doors remain open with limited staff daily and we are all accessible by phone and email.

Be advised that your Paulding Chamber staff will be calling each of our members to determine what needs you may have, what resources you can provide to the community and other businesses and to make sure we provide to you whatever resources you need to assist during this challenging time. We invite you to email your updates to us at:

shamby@pauldingchamber.org

sbone@pauldingchamber.org

ascheid@pauldingchamber.org

jmartin@pauldingchamber.org

It is imperative that we continue to support our small business community during this time while also protecting ourselves and others. Some considerations are:

- Purchase meals from our restaurants using drive through or curbside pick-up.

Or use a resource to have them delivered to you.

- Purchase a gift certificate or service from one of our members over the phone

for later use or curbside pickup.

Please reconsider making any online purchases unless it is with a local business or Chamber member. We are family and need to support each other! 

Check our Facebook page regularly for updates and what our wonderful members are offering.

As we emerge from this challenge, there will likely be economic impacts where our Chamber community can truly have the greatest impact in reviving economic prosperity. Together, we can and will overcome this unprecedented challenge with COVID-19.

Above all, know that the Paulding Chamber team is here to help you. #togetherwecan
