Area Chambers of Commerce are still working to help local businesses as many face new challenges because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Maryville Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lily White says they have a resource page on their website specifically for local businesses. 

“Our Chamber of Commerce has created a page called, ‘Maryville Strong,’" White says. "We are compiling information both about our small business resources, some remote tools to use if you have to be working from home, as well as operation changes to local businesses. Throughout Maryville and Nodaway County, we’re trying to gather as much information as we can about all of the businesses, not just chamber members, to get it out to our local community.”

White says many Maryville businesses are now closed to the public and are offering online options or carry out and delivery.

“We are just trying to get as much accurate information into the public as we can as well as get as many resources, we have quite a few SBA (Small Business Administration) resources and are working on getting even more SBA information to our community as SBA loans and different small business resources become available.”

The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce also has a resource page set up for local businesses. Visit for more information.
