The HART Center, a non-profit organization located in New Oxford, has been named the Chamber Business of the Year by the New Oxford Area Chamber of Commerce. The HART Center provides a variety of work training experiences for adults with disabilities in Adams County and York County. The Center celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2019 and currently serves over 150 individuals with developmental disabilities, chronic mental illness and physical disabilities. Individuals complete fulfillment projects and subcontract work for local businesses.
Each year, the Chamber presents the Business of the Year award to a member that has made a significant impact in the New Oxford community. Chamber members and their employees were asked to submit nominations for Chamber businesses or organizations that fit the aforementioned criteria. The Chamber received nominations for six different businesses and organizations this year. The Chamber Board of Directors unanimously voted to present the Business of the Year award to the HART Center based on the Center’s continual commitment to helping individuals in our community.
The Chamber Business of the Year is typically honored at the organization’s fall breakfast and in the annual Harvest Day Parade in October. Since both events were canceled this year due to COVID, the HART Center will be honored as the 2020 Business of the Year at the next in-person breakfast and in the 2021 Harvest Day Parade.
Past recipients of the Chamber Business of the Year include: Smith’s Auto Sales, Inc. (2019), Feiser Funeral Home, Inc. (2018), Eicholtz (2017), Sleighter’s Furniture & Sleep Shop (2016), Martin’s Hardware (2015), Scott &Co. Fine Jewelers (2014), Timbar (PCA) (2013) and Yazoo Mills (2012).
