Building Repairs at the Chamber Office

The construction has started at the Chamber Office. Sapphire Builders has repaired the alley way problem to the building. The alley way was the biggest trouble area of all the repair work. It went smooth with no problems. They are working on the outside of the building repairing the stucco and painting the building, urban brick red. They will be working in the basement steps, columns, beams, and basement door after Memorial Day.

Virtual Food Drive for Fulfill

In April the Greater Long Branch Chamber of Commerce along with the City of Long Branch hosted a Virtual Food Drive for Fulfill. Fulfill is the food bank for Monmouth and Ocean County.

Our goal was to raise $2,500.00. In the month of April we were able to raise $2,597.00. The Chamber and City wants to thank everyone who donated to the virtual food drive. In this time of the pandemic, we were able to supply the food bank with funds so they can supply food to all the local food pantries in Long Branch and the surrounding areas.

Chamber Magnet Promotion

The Chamber wants to thank all that purchased our Chamber Magnets this past month. It has helped the Chamber very much. We will still be selling them through the Summer at the Chamber Kiosk and also at the Chamber Office. Please stop by either the kiosk or office to purchase your magnet.
