United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce 2017 Day of Service December 7, 2017 wpengine | Posted on December 07, 2017 The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce National Day of Service is a day dedicated for local chambers across the country to unify volunteers in their local communities. The #ChambersGiveBack movement was built to highlight the many community relationships our chambers have with organizations serving their local communities and showcase how they give back to the communities they call home.“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ― Ralph Waldo EmersonThis year, on December 7th, over 15 local chambers across the country have dedicated the day to serve in various projects with their staff, volunteers, and business members.“We at the USHCC believe in giving back to the community in any way we can. Our Day of Service is a small example of the spirit of service demonstrated by our chambers every day,” said USHCC President & CEO, Javier Palomarez. “Today, we have local chamber leaders from all parts of the country coming together to serve their local communities, exemplifying how the Hispanic business community can come together to benefit communities across America.”This year, the #ChambersGiveBack movement will be joined by the following chambers, and organizations:Amarillo Hispanic Chamber of CommerceFort Worth Hispanic Chamber of CommerceGreater Austin Hispanic Chamber of CommerceGreater San Jose Hispanic Chamber of CommerceHispanic Chamber of Commerce of LouisianaHispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan St. LouisHispanic Chamber of Commerce of WisconsinIdaho Hispanic Chamber of CommerceIrving Hispanic Chamber of CommerceLatinos in Information Sciences and Technology AssociationNevada Hispanic Business GroupPittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of CommerceRegional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (Southern California)SafeTech IncSan Diego County Hispanic Chamber of CommerceNorth Carolina Hispanic Chamber of CommerceWichita Hispanic Chamber of CommerceSome of the organizations where our local chambers are volunteering include:Amarillo Botanical GardensBrothers BrotherCapital Area Food BankThe Main PlaceNew Orleans Family Justice CenterRonald McDonald HouseSouthside Community CenterThree Square Food BankAbout the USHCCThe USHCC actively promotes the economic growth, development and interests of more than 4.4 million Hispanic-owned businesses that, combined, contribute over $700 billion to the American economy every year.
