As part of Cameron LNG’s ongoing support of the SWLA Alliance Foundation, the company recently presented a check for $12,000 on March 9, 2022. These monies include their Chamber SWLA membership dues, sponsorships, and a $5000 donation to the Alliance’s Foundation. Their donation will help address the critical issues facing our region: business recruitment, and business retention and expansion.
“2021 was another year of challenges for our region. At the Chamber and the Alliance Foundation we were kept on task due to the steady leadership from last year’s Chair, Jim Giffin. While we were unable to show our appreciation to Mr. Giffin at our Annual Banquet due to quarantine precautions, we were happy that we got this chance to property thank Mr. Giffin for his service to the Chamber SWLA Board and the Southwest Louisiana business community as a whole,” said Chamber SWLA / SWLA Economic Development Alliance President and CEO George Swift.
“Ruralbusinesses play a key role in Louisiana’s ongoing economic growth and diversification,” LED Secretary Don Pierson said. “Our commitment to rural revitalization remains a priority, and our partnership with the Edward Lowe Foundation is one of the many ways we leverage available resources. Today, the state can spur rural economic growth by providing ruralentrepreneurs with state-of-the-art tools and more of the critical resources they need to be successful.”
