Every day, the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce works to make West Virginia a better place to do business by giving private-sector employers a voice in state politics and protecting business interests before regulatory bodies, the Legislature, and the courts.



Update on the Flood - How to Help

The outpouring of support by Chamber members for victims of the flood has been absolutely incredible.  A large shipment of supplies was delivered to the Elkview area yesterday by Chamber staff and those receiving it were very grateful.  We are continuing to closely monitor the situation and are collecting supplies and donations to help.  Below is an updated list of ways in which you can continue helping: 

  • Volunteers are needed in the field for intake and referral efforts.  If you or your business are interested in assisting with these efforts, please e-mail forjobs@wvchamber.com so we can connect you with agencies that are requesting volunteers.
  • Monetary Donations  can be made to the Red Cross at (304) 340-3650 or http://www.redcross.org/local/west-virginia or the United Way at http://www.unitedwaycwv.org/. You can also sign up to volunteer with both organizations at those links.
  • Donations can be made through the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce Foundation by sending a check to the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce Foundation  at P.O. Box 2789, Charleston, WV  25330.  Electronic transfers can also be set up by contacting Amanda Pasdon at apasdon@wvchamber.com or (304) 989-0664.  The West Virginia Chamber of Commerce Foundation is a 501(c)(3) and 100% of donations will go towards disaster relief efforts.
  • Togo boxes for serving food, plastic ware, diapers, batteries and cat food are items that have been specifically requested for certain areas. Cleaning supplies, including Clorox wipes, Clorox spray, sponges, hand sanitizer, 5-gallon buckets, contractor trash bags, can openers, toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, Q tips, Razors, industrial dust pans, shovels, mops, sunscreen, bug spray and bleach are also in high demand.  These supplies can be dropped off at locations throughout the flooding area.  They  can also be dropped off at the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce at 1624 Kanawha Blvd. East, Charleston, WV.  Supplies dropped off to the Chamber will be delivered daily where the need is greatest.
