Chamber Foundation

Some of Texas' greatest strengths spring from its sheer size and geographic diversity. But while these assets contribute to our thriving economy and create many opportunities, they sometimes increase our chances for natural disasters and other emergencies.

Texas ranks high among U.S. states in its number and variety of natural disasters, ranging from flooding to drought and from wildfires to ice storms. According to FEMA, Texans have experienced 263 federally declared disasters since 1953.

To help with issues that arise, the Parker County Chamber of Commerce formed a foundation for disaster relief. Because of the support of so many businesses, organizations, individuals and chamber members, the Parker County Chamber Foundation’s impact on our community continues to grow. We thank each one of our supporters for helping us develop the future of our beautiful community with a clear and productive vision.
