Child Health Association of Sewickley

In 1923, three women organized to provide fresh milk to undernourished Sewickley school children. How could they know that over 85 years later, the charitable society they formed would come to allocate over $3.7 million for children’s programs and services throughout Western Pennsylvania?

As a forerunner of volunteer action in Pittsburgh, the Child Health Association of Sewickley, named Outstanding Philanthropic Organization in 1997 by the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of Fund Raising Executives, has grown to be a noted funding source of child-related charities in Western Pennsylvania. We are an all-volunteer organization with approximately 60 active members and a caring constituency of over 150 associate members. Last year alone, our volunteers logged nearly 10,000 hours working toward Child Health’s mission of nurturing the WHOLE child by supporting programs and services that directly address children’s emotional, educational, physical and recreational needs.

Ambridge Area Chamber of Commerce

The Ambridge Area Chamber of Commerce, a local business and community development and resource center, was established back in 1920, during the time in which Ambridge, PA was a major benefactor in the developing steel industry. Ambridge, with such a rich ethnic background, was the prime location for a large community event, the largest in Beaver County, to be held. In 1965, the AACC began what has become a major staple event in the local areas, Nationality Days, held yearly along Merchant Street in Ambridge, which also happens to be the longest main street in Beaver County.

The Ambridge Area Chamber of Commerce has more recently undergone some of its biggest changes in its history. The chamber is now run by the youngest chamber director ever in the United States, Jeremy G. Angus. 
The Chamber has also undergone a major change in location. The organization has just moved into an old shopper’s rest area along the Merchant Street corridor. The building location was in a dilapidated state for the community when, some three years ago, the AACC was given the okay by the Ambridge Borough to completely renovate this space for new chamber offices and an Ambridge police substation. Over the last three years the organization has put over $120,000 into the new space.  

The Ambridge Area Chamber of Commerce continues to develop and progress into a highly successful and strong organization in the community. The Ambridge Area Chamber of Commerce truly hopes to continue to have the opportunity to reach out the town of Ambridge, one with a “Proud Past, Bright Future”, into the surrounding Pittsburgh areas.   

The Ambridge Area Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to not only the development and progression of this great community, but is also proud to represent hundreds of businesses in the local 8 communities they represent.  The Ambridge Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to represent: Ambridge, Baden, Bell Acres, Economy, Fair Oaks, Harmony Township, Leet Township and Leetsdale.  All of these communities and their businesses are important to the Ambridge Chamber.  The AACC welcomes all businesses to stop by and to see what new opportunities this organization can offer your company today.
