The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce announced Thursday its council, the Latino Business Alliance (LBA), has brought the community together to donate nine laptops to the Boys & Girls Club. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, and with current announcement of the school year to start with full time virtual learning, the LBA wants to ensure we are providing to our local nonprofits with much-needed resources during this time.
“Now more than ever, our community needs to step up and give back, and the Latino Business Alliance has heard the call to action and want to continue to support our youth in as many ways as possible,” stated, Henry Rodriguez, Chair of the Latino Business Alliance. “With today’s uncertainty in education for our children, donating laptops to assure virtual learning to the families of the Boys and Girls Club aligns with our purpose of a better business community and a brighter future for all!”
The Latino Business Alliance works to promote Latino-owned businesses as well as enhance a company’s efforts with Latino customers and businesses. The SCV Chamber strongly believes a growing Latino population is a vital part of our diverse and expanding business community. We understand the importance in providing assistance and support for Latino-owned businesses and working with our members on how to best market to the Latino community.
The Santa Clarita Valley has a strong philanthropic community with more than 100 locally based nonprofit organizations that help our community thrive. Our nonprofits are a key reason why Santa Clarita is a great community and always looking towards a better future. The LBA worked to support the Chamber’s Nonprofit Council’s mission, to provide business resources for our local nonprofit leaders to help them connect, grow, and learn about valuable information so they can successfully meet their organization’s mission and goals.
“We are very pleased with the work our Latino Business Alliance has been doing this year, given the pandemic, and for them to complement our Nonprofit Council’s mission, our councils are building community and staying #SCVProud,” stated Ivan Volschenk, Managing Partner at Evolve Business Strategies, which manages the SCV Chamber of Commerce. “As we continuously work and adapt to the current environment, we can’t forget what makes the Santa Clarita Valley great, and that is our local nonprofits who are working to serve our community.”
The Latino Business Alliance is looking into their next initiative to help our community during this dire time. If you are a Latino-owned business and are looking to get involved with the LBA or for nonprofits who are in need of resources, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to connect you with the necessary information.
