The McKinleyville Chamber of Commerce makes donations to the community by offering "Partnership" opportunities to local organizations/groups/schools. These opportunities are offered during various times of the year at various events. They range from something as small as a bake sale or as large as helping with Pony Express Days or the Parade. Here are some descriptions of the opportunities available. If there is an event that your organization would like to partner with the chamber on, please fill out the application. The chamber board of directors will choose a partner for each of the events and let all applicants know their status. If you have any questions regarding any of the events, please give Heather at the chamber office a call.
