Phillipsburg Area Chamber Chair
We hope everyone enjoyed a safe happy holiday, and a happy & healthy New Year!
As we closed out 2019, our Thanksgiving Charity Night at Quaker Steak & Lube in Phillipsburg, NJ was a great success. Donations totaled in at nearly $500 for the Norwescap Food Bank Turkey Drive, where every dollar leveraged provided 14 pounds of food to a family in need!
Our Annual Tree Lighting Celebration & Santa Visit was rescheduled for Monday December 9th due to inclement weather. As the new date approached, Mother Nature was still not cooperating and with heavy rain, we needed to move the tree lighting indoors. Thankfully, the local St. Phillips and St. James church graciously allowed us to use Mercy Hall. Despite all the changes, we had a tremendous turn out. Kids of all ages enjoy hot chocolate and hot dogs while waiting for their picture with Santa, and free toys were given. We are greatly appreciative of our sponsors for helping make this event happen.
2019 was a very exciting and productive year for The Phillipsburg Area Chamber of Commerce, and we are looking forward to 2020!
