The Charles City Chamber of Commerce received $3,000 worth of Fareway gift cards to give out to small business owners and employees.
Fareway Stores Inc. donated a total of $200,000 to Iowa Chamber of Commerce’s around the state.
“We hope this relief reduces some of the stress our community business partners are facing,” said Fareway President and CEO Reynolds W. Cramer after Fareway Stores, Inc.
The Chamber has been distributing the gift cards in $50 segments to local businesses who had to lay off workers or those on the front lines.
Most recently, the Chamber gave out gift cards to Floyd County Medical Center’s Rod Nordeng to be distributed to his employees.
