In 2016, Greater Chattanooga Realtors 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 1,870 students per week in 16 (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 purchase of food and the bags to be given 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 (while school is in session) at East Brainerd Church of Christ (7745 E. Brainerd Road) to assemble snack packs, and new volunteers are always welcome. Get additional info at their website.
