WAYS TO HELP
OR GIVE BACK
You've heard Chamber President & CEO, Doug Peters, say multiple times throughout this virus crisis - "The Abilene Way." What does he mean?
The Abilene Way is giving back in times of needs. Coming together as a community to serve, to help and to make a difference.
During this virus crisis, the Chamber has been blown away by the amount of Abilenians who have reached out to see how they can help or give back. Looking to do the same? Look no further.
