ALEXANDRIA — The Alexandria Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors recognized three local businesses on Wednesday, Feb. 8.

Kris Chisholm is the executive director of Car Care Program now in a new location at 4353 County Rd. 82 SE in Alexandria. Car Care Program accepts donated cares, repairs them, and then gives them to families and individuals in need who find themselves faced with a transportation barrier.

The process in receiving a vehicle requires the person take classes on how to maintain and take care of the vehicle as well as how to create a budget and maintain the insurance to protect them, their family, and the vehicle. Learn more by visiting their website at

Glacial Lakes Radon, owned and operated by Kevin Boike, is a radon measurement and mitigation business serving the central Minnesota area. Radon is an invisible and odorless gas that seeps into different structures. It is also the second leading cause for lung cancer, right behind cigarette smoking.

The company’s mission is to work with homeowners to reduce radon levels and give families peace of mind. Learn more by visiting
