The Rockdale Chamber of Commerce is a community based, non-profit organization designed to help build the business community. Our dedication is first and foremost to our members and businesses; we are also passionate about the community as a whole.
We strive to make sure that our businesses are successful and that we unify the public spirit of our community. Our mission is to preserve and promote the economic interest & well-being of Rockdale. We complete our mission every day by working with all other entities and community groups in Rockdale with the same version.
According to Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives Association, "The Chamber gives members a place where they can become engaged, sharing a vision for the future of their community and sharing the collective influence to make it happen."
At the Rockdale Chamber of Commerce, we believe in these statements and uphold the integrity and poise to be a valued organization within our community. Citizens have a responsibility to join the Chamber of Commerce as a sense of personal obligation to make a positive difference in their community.
Another role of the Chamber is that we serve as our communities Visitor Center. This gives us a responsibility to bring visitors and tourists into our community to visit our historical sites, engage in scheduled events, stay in our hotels, shop our stores and dine in our restaurants.
NEW BUSINESS OF THE MONTH
Milam County Pack Pals
1203 W Cameron Ave
Rockdale, Texas 76567
Milam County Pack Pals was created in Fall of 2016. The Pack Pals program provides a weekend supply of nutritious food for children when school lunch and breakfast is unavailable on a weekend or a school holiday. Each food bag contains 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 snacks. All food is nonperishable and provided to children free of charge. It is our hope these resources will support the health, behavior and achievement of every student that participates.
The program is run completely by wonderful volunteers who help pack the food bags. The program is funded through generous gifts of local churches, community businesses and volunteers. It is for all students that sign up.
The first pack pals bags were sent to the schools on Nov. 3rd and home to students on Nov. 4. At that time we were serving over 200 students.
We serve PK-5th grade, Rockdale and Milano ISD and will be adding more districts next year.
