  • Welcome to the Freeport Area Chamber of Commerce #livelifelocal Campaign

  • The #livelifelocal "Community Bingo" cards can be found at the Freeport Area Chamber of Commerce Office or any participating business/organization/event.

    The Chamber Office is located at

    27 West Stephenson Street in downtown Freeport

    Hours are:

    Monday-Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. 

     

  • What is Live Life Local? 

    The #livelifelocal campaign is a far-reaching initiative aimed at encouraging everyone in our area to live life locally. This means shopping locally, dining locally, buying a vehicle locally, using local resources, and supporting local events and organizations. We want to build a sense of community, promote prosperity, and generate more traffic for local businesses, organizations, and events. 

    The program is simple:

    • Shoppers pick up a card at the Freeport Area Chamber of Commerce office and local participating business/organizations.
    • The shopper visits FIVE of the participating businesses/organizations/events and turns the card back into the Chamber to be entered into a drawing. (Every five punches equals one entry)
    • Monthly drawings will be held at Business after Hours (the third Thursday of every month) and will feature a variety of prizes.

     

    We continually update the list on social media and our website, therefore if you are not ready to jump in and participate right away there is plenty of time throughout the year to be added!

    What will I need to do and what do I get out of it?

    All you and your staff have to do is punch the card(s) when a customer presents it in your business or at your event. We will provide you with the bingo cards and the special paper punch. Training your staff will be very simple.

    We welcome any business/organization/event to be part of the initiative as long as they are a Freeport Area Chamber of Commerce Member. 

    We will also promote you as one of our featured #livelifelocal businesses/organizations/events on social media and our website.

    Customers and potential customers will have one more reason to come to your place of business or your event.

    There is NO Cost to you as a Chamber Member! It is included in your annual membership investment.
