The Grand Rapids Chamber announces partnership with The Mitten State to raise funds for COVID-19 Relief

Grand Rapids, Michigan – The Grand Rapids Chamber today announced a partnership with The Mitten State to raise funds for Greater Grand Rapids Chamber Foundation to benefit those negatively impacted by the effects of COVID-19.

The fundraiser features a t-shirt designed in collaboration with the Grand Rapids Chamber and The Mitten State.

Five dollars of every t-shirt purchased will go back to the Greater Grand Rapids Chamber Foundation and their COVID-19 relief efforts.
