Charlotte Area Chamber Stands with Community in Wake of Tragedy

The Charlotte Area Chamber of Commerce joins the entire community in expressing our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of those impacted by the tragic shootings involving both the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Service this week. These events leave a heavy heart on our city, and we stand united in mourning.

In times of crisis, our community comes together with resilience and compassion. The Chamber recognizes the vital role law enforcement plays in keeping our city safe, and we honor the bravery of our officers who put themselves in harm's way every day.

How the Charlotte Area Chamber Community Can Help

The Chamber understands that many businesses and individuals may be seeking ways to support those affected by these events. Here are a few resources:

  • The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Foundation created a Help Our Heroes fund.
