What do you like about volunteering?
“At the Chamber, I really like the people I work with. At the Senior Center, it's the people who come into the fitness center and some of them have a tough time. They're there and working hard and I love meeting them. Just meeting all the new people at the senior center is wonderful.”

At the Chamber of Commerce, we'll help you do whatever you want to do in Gulfport or wherever else if we can help you."
