#Lovechattanooga

We Love Chattanooga.

We love to wear the shirts, put the stickers on our cars, and experience all that this city has to offer.
But what would happen if we showed our love for Chattanooga by the way we treated people? 

Imagine the impact we could have on our city if we Love Chattanooga one person at a time.
That means showing up to serve, meeting people right where they are, giving, inviting someone to dinner, connecting on a personal level.
We want to point people to real help and real hope. We want to point people to Jesus.

That is what #LoveChattanooga means to us.
Connecting. Serving. Giving.

October 2020

 Hardy Elementary 
  • We met specific classroom and school wide needs at Hardy Elementary, the inner city school we partner with.
  • We were to love and support the teachers and staff through Starbucks gift cards and we did Chick-Fil-A breakfast for the full staff at the end of the month. 

Metropolitan Ministries 
  • We helped MetMin get the final items off of their Amazon wish list before moving into their new building! We were able to give 7 brand new file cabinets for their office needs and case management for the guests they serve. 
  • The director of MetMin, Becky Whelchel, recently shared with us that they will be moving to their new building, the "Impact Hub", NEXT WEEK! They will be able to assist those in need soon after. We are so excited for them and can't wait to share more! 

The Salvation Army of Chattanooga
  • We provided 500 backpacks to The Salvation Army so that they will be able to give out these bags to the homeless in our city as winter approaches. As we talked with the staff, they shared with us what an impact this will make in the homeless community this winter and how grateful they were knowing this need is taken care. The backpacks will be filled with essential items such as hygiene items, hats, socks, etc. 

First Things First -
  • The staff members at FTF have been working tirelessly to create resources and online content to help strengthen family dynamics, marriages, parenting, etc. in out city. They have helped thousands of people, not only in Chattanooga, but also nationwide through their increased online presence during this season. To love on and uplift the staff, we were able to give a gift basket to each staff member containing a few gift cards from local businesses, office essentials, and some stress relief items.
