During this time of uncertainty and unprecedented changes, we want the community to know we are standing with them and are doing everything we can to support Enumclaw and the surrounding communities that we love.

 

Based on the current information we have, which changes by the moment, we are doing the best we can to support commerce in our community.  We are also seeing our community members coming out in force to support their friends and neighbors who own businesses locally.  As things change, we will do our best to update you on all things Enumclaw and the surrounding areas.

 

If you are wondering how YOU personally can help your local business community, and Enumclaw as a whole, this is what we know:

 

Stay calm.  Take care of yourself and your family.  Get your information from credible sources, like the CDC - not social media.  Follow the guidelines that are being set forth to protect you and the rest of the country.  If you can, get some take-out from one of our restaurants or coffee shops, or buy an online gift card from one of our retailers.  Our businesses are doing the best they can to serve our community and continue to pay their employees, they also are doing everything they can to minimize risk.  And one last thing, be kind.  We all have a different way of reacting to stress, and kindness goes a long way.   

 

We will get through this together, and your Chamber will do everything in its power to support commerce and community.
