First Friday Luncheon – Local Non-Profit & Luggage Drive

Join us for the November First Friday Luncheon at the Keller Convention Center!

Topic: Local Non-Profit

We have invited a local non-profit to speak on behalf of their organization and share their history, their plans for 2024 and exciting changes/updates they are looking forward to.

Luggage Drive:
For this luncheon, we will be accepting suitcases to donate to Safe Families for Children. Children who have experienced violence or neglect often enter the foster care system with nothing but the clothes on their backs or carrying a few personal belongings in a trash bag. Our hope is to provide these children with a suitcase and a new stuffed animal to help comfort them during this time of transition.

Featured Non-Profit:
Family Life Center

Cost*: $20 per person

Questions can be directed to the Chamber staff at (217) 342-4147.
