    Chamber develops childcare resource for region’s businesses
     
    WAUSAU — The Greater Wausau Chamber of Commerce, working closely with business leaders, K16 education leaders, professional day care organizations and youth-serving organizations in the region, has developed a new childcare resource on WausauChamber.com. This resource was built to serve those whose childcare options have been impacted by measures mandated to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). This online tool is intended to serve as the connecting piece between businesses of all types and those who offer childcare services.
     
    Businesses who have employees in need of childcare should refer them to the contacts listed on WausauChamber.com.
     
    “All in our business community, from the smallest of businesses to large corporations, are making rapid adjustments to an ever-shifting reality.” said David Eckmann, President and CEO at the Chamber. “As your business and your employees may be dealing with these changes, the closure of all schools and daycare organizations is placing an additional burden on everyone. While many are addressing the childcare issue by engaging family and friend networks, we have worked to develop another option.”
     
    For more information about the resource, contact the Chamber’s marketing manager, Brian Otten at 715-848-5947.
