The Cape May County Chamber announced their "Cheers!" Cape May County program April 10, which recognizes and celebrates local businesses and residents that are supporting the community during the COVID-19 crisis. 

The Cape May Maritime Museum, which made protective gear for local caregivers, and American Legion Post 331, which donated to the Cape Regional Foundation, were among the first recognized. The Chamber offers these initiatives a “cheers!” by posting about them on their website and social media pages, with the hashtag #cheersCMC and #CMCstrong, and by asking others to join in by offering thanks and sharing more about these organizations.

“Even in the midst of this difficult situation, there is so much good going on in our community,” said Doug Burke, the Chamber’s chairman. “We applaud our businesses and residents for doing all they can to help.” 

Burke Motor Group was also recognized by the program for presenting lunch to the Cape Regional Intensive Care Unit.

The full list of initiatives recognized by the campaign can be viewed on the Chamber’s website, under “Community,” and following the Chamber’s Facebook page is recommended to view ongoing updates.
