“Our Chamber is always looking for ways we can bring the community together to make Pooler an even better place,” said Courtney Rawlins, President & CEO of the Pooler Chamber. “This fun event will help us all clean out and beautify our homes and neighborhoods by responsibly disposing of or donating items we no longer use.”
