GRC In The Community
The Greater Rostraver Chamber of Commerce prides itself on community involvement through partnerships with other organizations and giving back when the opportunities arise.
Each year, we collaborate with the Westmoreland County Parks and Recreation on August Fun Fest and Rostraver Township and Rostraver Township Lions Club on the annual Christmas Celebration, and we are a partner of the Mon Valley Home Show.
The GRC also works with the Belle Vernon Area School District on various student programs, and provides scholarships to BVA, Westmoreland County Community College, Douglas Education Center, and California University of PA.
In addition, GRC Executive Director, Gina C. Lynn and other members can be found volunteering their time or service throughout the community.
Other Community Events
The GRC maintains the Beautification Area on the traffic island located along Rt. 201 and Vance DeiCas Highway through sponsorship from Community Bank, McKnight Medical, Monongahela Valley Hospital, PNC Bank, Valley Veterinary Services, and through generous donations of our members. McShane Florist and Greenhouse and Martin’s Flowers and Shrubs provides the annual lawn and garden care.
Members of the GRC are actively involved with Belle Vernon Area School District programs and projects. The WILLPower program (Women Invested in Learning Leopard Power), Senior Projects, Career Day and Senior Day of Caring are areas of involvement.
The GRC volunteers service and facilitates events to aid other non-profit agencies and community residents, such as working with the CREW Missions, The Mon Valley Salvation Army, Mon River Arts, and others.
