Brush! Chamber April Update

Greetings everyone,


Below are some upcoming items the Chamber has going on.


Welcome Center Request

As a Chamber of Commerce, we are also a Welcome Center in the community. The Chamber has a display with community information including flyers, pamphlets, and contact information. In addition, we prepare welcome packets for new community members. With that said, we would like to put a request out for new and updated materials from businesses and organizations that we have not received items in a while as were are running low on a number of items. Materials can be dropped off at the Chamber office, or we can be given notice to pick items up by emailing brushchamberexecdir@gmail.com.


Brush Give Back Day

We are a few weeks out from Brush High School Give Back Day on Thursday, April 25, 2024. This means that Brush School District need to start organizing job lists to start seeing about how many students to send to each job site. The students will have gloves, some access to tools, trash bags, safety vests, etc. If you can provide materials, we can do some light landscaping, plantings, painting, staining, spread gravel, build fences, etc.


Deadline for jobsites for the form below will be April 18, 2024.
