"How much good inside a day?
Depends how good you live ’em."

-Shel Silverstein
Walworth County has six acting chambers, a visitors’ bureau and an economic alliance organization that help provide support and resources to over 1,000 businesses. Chambers work to encourage, support and promote the businesses that they partner with, and after all that we experienced in 2020, the chamber to chamber collective agreed that a reboot would be beneficial to everyone we connect with.

For the month of February, the active support these organizations are offering, is the challenge to care. The Take Care Challenge is a 3-part challenge focusing on Body, Mind & Heart! To care about yourself, to care about your neighbor and to care about the community you live, work and play in.

Every day there will be posts on social media that lean into each area of caring. This is not only an initiative to help us jumpstart our physical, mental and emotional health, but an opportunity to share with Walworth County the resources and impact that our business partners and community organizations possess.
If your business or local organization has a service or resource that can benefit those taking part in the Take Care Challenge, please contact Belle Carbonara at belle@visitwalworthcounty.com.

Be mindful. Find joy. Believe in kindness....and take care!
And of course, keep sanitizing!
