TRC In The Community

The Twin Rivers 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 Rostraver Township and Rostraver Township Lions Club on the annual Christmas Celebration, and we are a partner of the Mon Valley Home Show.

The TRC 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, TRC Executive Director, Gina C. Lynn and other members can be found volunteering their time or service throughout the community.

Mon Valley Home Show
The Annual Mon Valley Home Show is a community tradition, celebrating over 25 years in existence. The Home Show provides an opportunity for community residents and consumers to visit with a variety of businesses in the home remodeling, décor, finance and other specialties in one convenient location.
Rostraver Township Christmas Celebration

The Annual Rostraver Christmas Celebration is presented by the Twin Rivers Chamber of Commerce, Rostraver Lions Club, Rostraver Township, Township Fire Departments and area businesses. The festivities include a visit with Santa Claus, goody bags for the children, with treats and items provided by members of the TRC, tree lighting, bonfire, hot chocolate, cookies, and more! The U.S. Marine Corps Reserves is on hand to conduct their annual Toys for Tots campaign as well. This annual holiday tradition offers fun for the entire family.

The WILLPower program (Women Invested in Learning Leopard Power), Senior Projects, Career Day, Finance Fair, and the 2018 initiated Emerging Leadership Program, sponsored by Simplot North Charleroi.

The TRC volunteers service and facilitates events to aid other non-profit agencies and community residents, such as working with the Monessen Salvation Army, North Belle Vernon Community Bank Park, and others.
