In 2016, GCAR committed to supporting "Snack Packs" for Hamilton County school children with an initial $20,000 contribution that year and a $10,000 annual contribution in subsequent years. The Snack Pack movement puts food in the hands of more than 1,000 students per week in 12 (and growing) different Hamilton County schools. Partnering with the Chattanooga Food Bank to minimize food costs, the Snack Pack program is entirely volunteer-driven with every penny going toward the assembly and distribution of snack packs to Hamilton County schools. Just $80 feeds one child for an entire school year, and anyone can sponsor a child by writing a check noted with the Snack Pack initiative to East Brainerd Church of Christ (7745 E. Brainerd Road).
REALTORS® and community volunteers gather the first Wednesday of each month at East Brainerd Church of Christ (7745 E. Brainerd Road) to assemble snack packs, and new volunteers are always welcome. Join these efforts at:
- 2:00 to assist with Set-Up
- 6:30 to fill Snack Packs
- You do not need to register to participate - just show up the first Wednesday of each month at either (or both) time slot, and we will put you to work for a good cause. Families are welcome.
