University Area Community Center ExpoINVOLVEMENT IN THE COMMUNITY: Be it involvement with students at local schools, helping a Children's Home, recognizing our dedicated public safety officers, helping wounded military, event participation for a worthy cause, or promoting beautification of North Tampa; the Chamber offers its members the opportunity to give back to the community. Special Activities such as workshops, events and programs for the education of our youth and our chamber members are ongoing to serve the members and the community. Involvement in community projects remains a high priority of the Chamber. Join us and help make our community a better place to live and thrive.

The North Tampa Chamber sponsors and participates in many varied ongoing events and programs throughout the year. Our membership's support for these events are rooted deep in the traditions and purpose of the Chamber to serve, honor and reward as many segments of the North Tampa community as we can.

OPERATION HELPING HAND: Operation Helping HandThe North Tampa Chamber is partnering with the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA). This is an initiative to give assistance and support to the wounded and injured active duty, reserve and National Guard members of the military and their families during a time that they are under much stress and anxiety. The wounded are at the James A Haley Veterans Hospital. The length of stay averages 45 days, but many are there 120 days or more. Most of the families are from out of state. They receive assistance from the armed forces, but it is not enough. Donations can be made at all chamber meetings. Credit card payments are accepted at meetings or at the "pay online" icon on our home page. Credit card payments are processed by the chamber then a check is issued to Operation Helping Hand. Checks should be made payable to Operation Helping Hand and sent to the chamber office. One hundred percent of all donations go to Operation Helping Hand. The chamber volunteers all processing time.  For more information, visit the Tampa Chapter of MOAA website.

 
Student of The MonthSTUDENT OF THE MONTH: Each month during the school year, at our General Meeting, we honor and celebrate the "Student of The Month" chosen from one of North Tampa's many public and private schools. The student is chosen for achievements in academics, athletics, community involvement, peer tutoring, or showing progress in a specific area. Sponsorships by chamber members are encouraged. The sponsor gets recognition in the newsletter, meeting program and participates in the award presentation.

This law enforcement person, with his or her family, is our guest and honored at our annual banquet.

ADOPT-A-FAMILY: This committee coordinates obtaining worthy recipients (family, organization, etc) for donations with board approval then secures donations of money and items to fulfill their needs. Chamber businesses contribute additional "special" gifts, money and support.
