This week on the blog we hear from Adam Bader and The Calgary Chamber of Commerce on our recent custom garment collaboration in support of #Here4YYC!
Read the full story about how the Calgary Chamber of Commerce used custom garments as the vehicle to build community, demonstrate their support and show up for Calgarians during COVID-19!
The Calgary Chamber has been at the heart of Calgary business for almost 130 years, celebrating the wins and successes, while having the backs of businesses during times of upheaval and uncertainty. Amplifying your voice to political decision makers at all levels, the Chamber has been advocating for your business and a thriving business community since before Calgary was a city.
COVID-19 is no exception, the Chamber has had the backs of businesses providing resources and support throughout the crisis. #Here4YYC is a rally cry to support local businesses and connect them to the resources they need during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Chamber is listening and creating action plans to build a resilient business community for the future, because when businesses thrive, communities thrive.
Understanding the inherent link between resilient businesses and community, the Calgary Chamber has partnered with Local Laundry creating products to amplify the #Here4YYC message. Proceeds from the sale of each item will be donated to The Alex, an organization that provides essential services to vulnerable Calgarians.

Partnering with Local Laundry was a natural fit for the Chamber, as Local Laundry is a Local Business that prides themselves on using Canadian manufacturing. They are also a firsthand example of being #Here4YYC with their Healthcare Zip-Up Hoodie that gives 100% of its profits to the COVID-19 relief effort.
