The Houma-Terrebonne Chamber of Commerce is the proud recipient of a $1,000 Wal-Mart Foundation Community Grant through the local Sam's Club on Martin Luther King Blvd.
The grant has been awarded to upgrade the technology components of the Chamber's community room. The room is available for use by Chamber members and non-profit organizations in the community needing a location to conduct meetings or conference calls.
"We are so honored and privileged to receive a grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation. This is all made possible because of the staff at the local Sam's Club,” said Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Drake Pothier.
The Chamber's membership is comprised of more than 80% small businesses many of which do not have access to meeting space or the technology to conduct teleconferences or audio-video presentations. The community room is just one of many services and programs available through the Chamber.
The Wal-Mart Foundation addresses community needs and supports opportunities in education, workforce development, environmental sustainability, and health and wellness.
If you are interested in scheduling a meeting in the Chamber's conference room, please call the Chamber at 876-5600 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
