The Hamden Rotary Club will be providing FREE Amber Alert ID cards at the Hamden Business Expo. Amber Alert ID cards allow your child’s photo and basic information (height, weight and identifying characteristics) to be added to the CT State Amber Alert ID database so in the event your child is missing, an Amber Alert can be easily broadcast. The parent will also be provided with an ID card with the same information.
The Chamber Launches the First Town-Wide #Day2Donate
The Chamber is proud to support local agencies and non-profits at the EXPO to bring awareness of the needs within the community and beyond. This year we have launched a town-wide initiative called #Day2Donate. We are asking attendees to come and experience our business community and give back to your favorite cause. It’s a day to make a difference and to make a tremendous impact. From suits for veterans to school supplies, from pet products, children’s coats and non-perishable food for seniors, the list is growing and the needs are great for the community to support. If you haven’t exhibited lately, this is the year to get involved.
