    Give Back to the Community
     
    Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce is overjoyed at all the ways our members have found to give back to the community during this time of need. Through out the last few weeks, we have seen the Greater Riverview community come together more than ever to support each other through these challenging times. We encourage all of you to partake in giving back to those who need it most and recognize those who are risking their lives everyday to keep our community safe!
     
    One of our valuable GRCC Members, Sam's Club #4801 (Riverview) implemented various “exclusive hours” to provide special shopping opportunities to select groups. On a few select Sunday’s, they allowed first responders and nurses to shop early as well as one day just for teachers to come in early. Because of that success, they started allowing seniors and those with complicated respiratory systems to shop with less crowds starting at 7:00 AM on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Sam’s Club #4801 (Riverview) even set up a “concierge” to shop for their members who didn’t want to come in the club. Customers simply told them what they needed, and Sam’s Club employees went in to shop for them and bring it out to their car.  In addition to these store concessions, Sam’s Club #4801 (Riverview) has also been able to donate $7,000 to local Riverview non-profits, provide pizzas to the local fire department, and donate supplies and food to St. Joseph’s Hospital on multiple occasions.
     
    A few other generous GRCC Members took the time and money to give back in an inspiring way. Janice Bayruns with FirstLight Home Care secured Red Carpet Carwash & Mobile Detailing Inc. to clean healthcare (assisted living facilities) employee’s vehicles to show their appreciation! 3 C’s Catering LLC joined forces with other local vendors to give away a free wedding to an essential worker or front-line employee. Bryan & Heather Hindman with Bryan Hindman Electric LLC built hand washing stations on all of their company trucks to keep their clients and employees safe. They also started a "Congratulations 2020 Graduates" lawn sign project to recognize the high school seniors graduating without a conventional end of the year ceremony.
     
    There are many, many businesses and individuals giving back to the community and doing what they can to help their neighbors, families, employees, etc. Lots of businesses are thriving because of the continued support from the surrounding community and its residents. The Greater Riverview community would not be what it is without the generous and kind individuals that consistently provide support. If you have an inspirational story or ways your business has given back to the community, please email details to the Greater Riverview Chamber of Commerce at info@riverviewchamber.com or call the office at 813-234-5944.
