Thursday, October 12th, 2017

The North Myrtle Beach Chamber Foundation has joined forces with North Strand Helping Hand for the fourth consecutive year to make the Thanksgiving holiday a little brighter for families throughout the North Myrtle Beach area. This year, from Oct. 2 through Nov. 21, the Chamber Foundation will be raising money to provide deserving North Myrtle Beach families with a hearty holiday meal. The cost of one Thanksgiving turkey dinner, which feeds a family of four, is $25.

Those who would like to donate to this year’s Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner Drive through the Chamber Foundation can submit donations online or visit the Chamber’s headquarters at 1521 Hwy. 17 South, North Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Over the past four years, the North Myrtle Beach Chamber Foundation’s fundraiser in partnership with North Strand Helping Hand has donated 1,725 Thanksgiving turkey dinners to help deserving families in the North Myrtle Beach area.

“Our Chamber Foundation is strongly dedicated to meeting the needs of the people in our community. It is a privilege to take part in this effort each year, and to see so many benefit from the donations of our local supporters,” said Marc Jordan, president and CEO of the North Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to partner with North Strand Helping Hand to bring joy to families as they gather together this holiday season.”

The North Myrtle Beach Chamber Foundation, founded in January 2010, is a volunteer-based non-profit organization dedicated to support and advance the general welfare and prosperity of the greater North Myrtle Beach area. The foundation places emphasis on programs that impact the community’s quality of life, including civic, cultural, economic and educational development.
