Chamber Introduces MyMuncie Campaign
MUNCIE, Ind. – The Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce launched the second phase of its Pride Campaign on Oct. 2 at the “Muncie on the Move” breakfast. The campaign’s goal is to recognize the “unsung volunteers” of Muncie while encouraging citizens to work toward bettering their community.
“Citizens who are emotionally connected to their community elevate life experiences for everyone,” said Roger Lavery, Chamber Image Committee Chair. “We could not survive and prosper as a community without them.”
Phase one of the campaign, “Muncie Gives, Muncie Lives,” set out to instill pride in every Muncie citizen. A survey conducted by the Chamber and the Muncie Action Plan (MAP) showed a necessity for a simpler campaign.
The new, second phase, “MyMuncie,” will build off the first but will work on engaging citizens in community involvement. Through recognizing the “unsung volunteers” of Muncie, the Chamber hopes citizens from all walks of life will realize they, too, can make a difference.
“The Chamber of Commerce is excited to introduce the second phase of its Pride Campaign to Muncie,” said Jay Julian, Chamber president and CEO. “The MyMuncie phase will continue on the path of instilling a sense of pride in every citizen and engaging them in volunteerism.”
Many sponsors made the second phase of the Pride Campaign possible through generous donations of cash, time, space and/or other resources. In addition to these sponsors, the Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the Ball Brother’s Foundation for assisting in making this campaign possible through its grant funding.
