Chamber sets practices forum

Among the groups hit hardest by COVID-19 is Blair County’s nonprofit community. Many nonprofits were unable to continue operating and the resources to fund them practically dried-up.

To discuss ways that these essential businesses can get back on their feet, the Blair County Chamber’s Committee of Non-Profits is holding a best practices forum from 8:15 to 9:45 a.m. Sept. 18 at the Devorris Center for Business Development. Chamber President Joe Hurd will facilitate the discussion.

There is no cost to attend, but

registration is required since no more than 25 can attend. To register, contact the Chamber at 943-8151 or register online.

Sheetz recognized

Great Place to Work and People have named Sheetz as one of the 2020 People’s “50 Companies that Care.” The annual list, now in its fourth year, specifically focused on how companies have responded to the COVID-19 crisis to care for their employees, their communities and the world.

Sheetz — the only convenience store on the list — ranked 11th on this year’s list, which will be included in the Sept. 14 issue of People, which hits newsstands nationwide today.

“The health and well-being of our team members, customers and communities we call home has been our top priority since the onset of COVID-19,” said Travis Sheetz, president and chief operating officer of Sheetz in a statement. “As an essential business, Sheetz has been committed to staying open to serve the needs of the community. We are truly grateful for the dedication and commitment of our employees, who have worked tirelessly to provide total customer focus, especially during these challenging times. They are the true heart and soul of this company.”
