The Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce recently donated funds to various regional volunteer and nonprofit organizations to help further their missions and mandates.

Each organization received a $1,000 donation from the Chamber with each having a specific purpose for the funds.

Upper Macungie Station 56 will purchase two ammonia detectors to help detect toxic levels of ammonia in the cold storage industry.

Meals on Wheels will be using its funds to provide meals to 267 low-income, homebound seniors.
