Salvation Army toy drive

Please help us brighten up the holidays for a few less fortunate and underserved local families by joining the Napa Chamber Foundation, Grocery Outlet and Greene’s Cleaners for our Christmas toy drive to benefit our local Salvation Army.

Gift boxes are currently located for toy drop off at NCC offices (1556 First St.), both Greene’s Cleaners’ locations (1660 Silverado Trail and 2842 Jefferson St.) and the Grocery Outlet (1491 W. Imola) until Tuesday, Dec. 4.

Our local Grocery Outlet has also stocked a few $5 to $10 toys to make it convenient for shoppers to make a small donation.

Time to give thanks

It’s been a little more than four years since becoming president and CEO of the Napa Chamber of Commerce. And while there’s not enough column space to acknowledge all the things I continue to thankful for, I thought I’d share a few not-so-obvious (family, health, etc.) grateful thoughts for the Thanksgiving holiday.

  • The community of Napa – for simply inspiring us with your support. The Chamber is blessed to be a part of your amazing, resilient fabric.
  • NCC members –several hundreds of you have been engaging, connecting and collaborating with us for at least 50 years, Including the grandfather of them all – Malloy, Imrie & Vasconi, since 1908 (110 years).
  • NCC Staff — aka “The Little Engine That Could” — Philippa Perry, Camille Ball, Lura Compoginis, Nyssa Dunning and Paula Wick; with tremendous support from our board of directors, ambassadors, membership engagement team.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Napa Chamber of Commerce!
