More than 400 businesses and organizations belong to the Chamber to receive benefits and support efforts to strengthen their businesses and our region. Increased membership allows us to offer additional programs and benefits, have a stronger voice in advocacy and be involved in more activities and initiatives in our communities. The Chamber welcomes its newest member, For The Cause, to help us fulfill our mission.
For The Cause is a nonprofit organization based in Berwick whose mission is to make Columbia and Luzerne counties, specifically the Berwick area, a region of pride where those communities thrive as they live, work and play. For The Cause was founded by the Nespoli brothers — Marc, Jonathon and Josh — all Berwick natives who also represent three other respective Chamber member organizations: Villager Realty, Nespoli Jewelers and Community Strategies Group. For The Cause is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year, and it looks forward to continuing to make an impact on the Berwick community. Over the last decade, it has built awareness or local health initiatives through over 20 community events that attracted more than 1000 participants and raised more than $100K. The organization has also distributed over 200K meals to local families in need through food campaigns, and contributed free snacks through its Kids’ Cafe program to dozens of after school programs and summer camps. Its newest endeavor, the Teen Center, will be celebrating its one-year anniversary this fall after opening in Sept. 2017.
